Coming Home

Last night was one of those moments when I was in the right place at the right time and I was able to think quickly on my feet. I walked out to photograph the sunset and after I had finished I was walking back to the house and I thought, "Wow, the house looks pretty nice in that soft evening light". Seconds later I was photographing the house when I heard Lenore coming home from work. I made a quick decision and I waited until her headlights were past me before I tripped the shutter. The long exposure allowed the camera to record the cars taillights as it pulled into the driveway. I just love how this image turned out. I praise you Lord for blessing me with a wonderful family and a warm place to sleep at night. chris

    1. Indeed they are fun and really cool, Isabelle Zita. That time just after the sun has gone down is perfect. Thank you for dropping by for a look and commenting.
