How many times do we say to ourselves. "its a boring sunset" or "the sky is gray", and just stay home or drive on by. Time and time again I learn that there is always a photo opportunity if you are ready. I actually left my camera in the car and just walked up to the beach and saw this gut with a red umbrella about a half km away. I immediately ran back to my car and got my camera. I knew the striking red umbrella would look great on this slightly rainy day. Sure enough, when I got back here is what I saw. Now. obviously without the guy with the red umbrella, there would not have been anything of interest in this photo. I simply cropped it emphasising the rule of thirds as it called out for it. I originally cropped it with the sky as 1/3 but it was too much grey.
