I have a lot of photos that I have described as one of my favorites. Well here it is. MY FAVORITE SHOT EVER!!! I shot this in 2002 in Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia. It was just one of those lucky moments to catch on film. It was not doctored in Photoshop. Nothing major anyway. Increased contrast in the sky, and brightened the rocks in the foreground, which is stuff I could have done in the darkroom. Got rid of a few people walking aound on the rocks, otherwise, the negative looks exactly like this. The ironic thing is, I thought I was totally wasting my time waiting for the sunset. It was very overcast. The sun was behind the clouds, and it was just a gray, dreary, ugly evening. Just a minute before the sun set, the sun dropped below the clouds. With the sun exposed, the landscape transformed into this magical scene. One minute later, the sun dropped below the horizon, and everything turned gray and dreary again.
