I got back to my truck feeling pretty pleased with myself and then the LUG effect kicked in. I had just taken a portrait in full sun at around midday. Not a crime but on this occasion I could have avoided it. I went back into dither mode for a while but decided that I would rather replay the ordeal than spend the rest of the day kicking myself for not getting what I knew to be a better shot. Back I went and explained the characteristics of light to an obviously accomplished landscape artist, think about that for a moment. It bears repetition, back I went and explained the characteristics of light to an obviously accomplished landscape artist, am I an imbecile or what? Perhaps people who find this sort of thing easy will now appreciate how nervous I get in these situations. Fortunately for me, “Cyppo” was graciousness personified and we crossed the road for some open shade and I took the photograph I should have taken in the first place. If, as I was, you are curious about the name “Cyppo” I will save you some time. I have already offered his name up to “Google” and it provided the link under his portrait.
