Standing in the parking lot under a light rain, Jen and I conferred. The kids were in the car, anxious to get out. Her husband was of the mind that she got to make the decision on this one. Great light, a long distance we all traveled, and tons of rain. We decided to reschedule.

As we found a date that worked for all of us, the sun began to break through parted clouds. The kids were promised that they could get out of the car to feed the ducks anyway. We decided to go for it. And am I glad we did. Photography isn’t a convenient thing. The best shots are just during or after inclement weather, at the crack of dawn, or while everyone else is eating dinner. But when you catch that light….nothing could be better.
