Bear Mountain Bridge



I went to the bridge tonight thinking I might catch the moonrise over the mountain and it would make a great photo.  That did not work out, but when I over exposed the scene by about 1 and 1/3 stops I picked up all the ambient light from down river and came away with this beauty instead.

Object Lesson: Always be prepared to take advantage of the unexpected opportunity when it arises.

Keep Makin' Art!

Who was it said that making great art is taking advantage of the accidents?

I wouldn't say this was accidental exactly, but it sure is great art!

A piece to be proud of - if you'll forgive the final preposition.

Great Picture!! Yes those happy acidents are a beauty but you do need to be prepared for them.

Good luck with an accident isn't enough. You clearly use an accident in art as an opportunity.

I think that's why I started water color and torn paper stuff. I had to let go of that absolute control thing and simply go with a vision and whatever "accidents" happen along the way.

This is a stunner.
