I had driven by this scene numerous times and always thought it was a beautifully simple composition. So on a stormy fall afternoon I knew I might have a chance to capture something special so I made the 30 minute drive from my home. It was another 20 minute walk to get to the scene. Then the wait began. Beautiful clouds, but no light. Drizzling rain. Pouring rain. As the sun began to set, the rain stopped. The sun dropped below the clouds giving me this beautiful, soft, side-light, filling this small spot in front of me highlighting this solo palm tree.
