If you photograph nature, landscapes, critters or anything else outside, you need to be adaptable. You never know what will happen.
Once, I went to shoot on a trail in Sedona, Arizona only to find it closed due to a wildfire. Another time a rock fall had blocked the road to a shoot location. I’ve also had to change or cancel shoot plans due to snow, rain, wind, sand storms, haboobs and lightning.
This photograph is a great example of being flexible. I went out to shoot a meteor shower only to find the sky almost a solid sheet of clouds. I knew the meteor shoot was a bust, so I started looking around to see what I could shoot. Just then, the moon appeared through a small break in the clouds. I saw other breaks moving my way, so I decided to shoot the moon.
I processed the moon shots, a lot, to bring out colors and textures and wound up with this shot and others like it. If you go to my YouTube page https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcd8nqgH0CiaveaIlKbE1mA you will find a short video showing several of my other moon photographs from that night.
