I Had To Pass...

I came across this scene yesterday and thought to myself, "Wow, what a composition." However, I already had two scenics in a row (#19 & #20) On A Roll so I had to pass. Sometimes it just does not work out. 


Soon after I shot this on my Nikon P7000 point-and-shoot, the weather turned and it started raining. Now this scene is gone. We often think of a running deer or a bolt of lightning as a brief moment in time, but in truth, every moment in nature is fleeting.
