I've been trying to get a very particular shot for about 8 months now, and my latest attempt this week resulted in yet another failure. I'm beginning to come to terms with the fact that my only other option aside from altering the earth's course of rotation might be photoshop.
The latest attempt
Day one, nope nope nope.
Attempt # 3, I think.
I was in a bit of a bitter mood as I packed up my gear having wasted half of my Christmas Eve for one lousy shot, but as I headed home, I reminded myself that time spent doing something you love, is time well spent, regardless of the outcome. After the change of heart, I was able to snap a few photos that made me feel a bit better about the effort I'd put in that morning.
