Look Ahead

Photography is sometimes about capturing fleeting moments. There was a time when I would have overlooked this image before and after the camera, let alone published it. Before, because it is just a routine thing, the sunset. After, because it might not be what someone else would think was a perfect shot. When you are “looking ahead,” it becomes something more than routine. It may not be perfect, but it was that fleeting moment that represented Looking Ahead.
