An important rule in photography is to break the rules!
And when a photographer is lost into composing a scene before him, there might be something more interesting happening in the other direction…
This was my experience when Sunday evening saw my wife and me out on a leisurely drive. We landed at the quietest and most scenic place closest to home, the church on the mount. And while I was composing this picture, there was a sudden exclamation from her.
“Look the other way,” she said. And behind me on a tiny branch, framed within the most breathtaking view of the river Mandovi was a very magnificent bird. I felt like kicking myself, because this was one day I had deliberately not taken the Sony H50 and was stuck with my cell phone camera… however I quite liked the output.
If you zoom in closer into the picture, you will just see the yellow bird right in the centre… 😉
