One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2019—Just a Little Late

The sun was rising quickly and I was facing north concentrating on a landscape shot near Big Timber, MT. My colleagues were behind me taking turns shooting east on the railroad tracks as the sun rose perfectly centered between the tracks. When I turned around, I could see that I was missing the shot, and further realized that there was only room on the railroad track for one shooter. I was just a little late and I thought I was out of luck. When everyone else walked away, I took a shot anyway, knowing that the sun was no longer centered over the tracks. It wasn’t THE shot but I liked the scene. Lucky for me, that afternoon, we had a Digital Darkroom session, and Moose came to the rescue. He showed me how to use the clone stamp in Photoshop to nudge the sun back to dead center of the railroad tracks.
