This afternoon we headed out for a walk and I took my Leica to check that a recent repair had done the trick. There is something particular I have noticed here in Canada, and it’s how often there are incredibly fleeting moments that appear one second and are gone literally the next. So many times I’ve been confronted by an amazing moment of light, and by the time I’ve raised my camera to my eye, the moment has disappeared. This afternoon, however, was not one of those occasions. It was the last few minutes of sun before it would dip below the mountain behind our house, and suddenly the sun came streaming through the forest and the trees and water started to steam in the sun. I was there to see it happen and after taking 2 shots I blinked and it was gone. This first photo below is the first shot I took and I love how it captured the sight in front of me. It also shows that my camera appears to be working!
