And when I’m incomplete
I will choose to receive
You love me"

The sun apparently tried to stay in bed and under the sheets as long as possible this morning. At least I got a tiny peek.

Decided that instead of shooting tonight I would just stay home and spend some quality time with my son. Well...the sky was too much to resist so I ran up to the top of the parking garage to catch a few shots. I kinda like it.

Our praise will break the darkness
We declare, Your kingdom's here"

Sometimes things we view as negative life changing events are actually blessings in disguise.

"And then I saw You
Shine, shine, shine like the sun
You’re waking us to life, You’ve only begun
Every fear, every doubt disappears when You shine on us"

"I’ve made up my mind...I’m never going back"

"There wasn't a day
That You weren't by my side
There wasn't a day
That You let me fall
All of my life
Your love has been true
All of my life
I will worship You"
- Bethel Music

Sometimes even when you don't feel motivated to do something you gotta just force yourself to go. So glad I did that tonight or I would have missed an epic sunset.

You know it's a dark and cloudy morning when you totally missed the sun rising even though you were focussed on where it was supposed to be.

Sunset yesterday was a challenge for me. There were no waves and no clouds. We checked 2 different locations before settling on a 3rd. And even then, the spot we planned on shooting was buried under 2 feet of sand. I was forced to look at everything differently. Honestly I'm just happy I got a few shots and it didn't end up being a "delete all" day.

I'm always looking for some water action but sometimes I get a little more than I was bargaining for. Shooting this at a little longer than 11mm might have been a smarter choice. The ocean definitely isn't always predictable.
