It’s surprising how much difference a little bit of elevation can make to a scene. This is yet another image from Birling Gap, taken just after ‘Waiting for the Light’ as we were climbing the steps away from the beach.
Images like this are ones over which we have no control. I hesitate to use the word ‘luck’ because luck always implies something very passive, and I prefer to consider images are the result of opportunities that are seen and seized. Images like this evolve as the groups of people change position and the overall dynamic subtly shifts. I saw a potential opportunity and I was fortunate – let’s call it happenstance.
