Default another Florida sunset

Went to visit a friend this evening staying near the Isle of Capri. We enjoyed the food, the company and the sunset:

Purty. You could not have placed the elements any better manually.

Hi Steven/Greg/Bob,


Thanks.

As You know Steven, all the tourists come out each evening to take in the spectacular sunset. I was standing there looking at the water trying to figure out a place where I could best frame a shot when I noticed this Pelican flying in from a long distance away. I couldn't have asked for a better scenario since he gave me plenty of time to change settings and get ready.

It was pure luck.

Zig

Luck = Preparation+opportunity. You were prepared and took advantage of the opportunity.

Hi Dan/Ted/Gary,

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

As much as I get frustrated with what I can't do at times with the E-30, I pull out the 12-60mm SWD, stick it on the E-30 and I'm a happy camper. This is just a sweet combination.

Zig
