gleaming hope

Posted by
shoti (somewhere in, China) on 25 April 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I forgot to mention that we had very cloudy sky during that time but that didn't stopped me from expecting beautiful light to happen。We arrived at our hostel and I was snapping away some photos when this scene showed up。I knew I had little time to capture this so I clicked my shutter crazily fast。This is one of the shots that showed almost perfect lighting(for me, at least)。

I just realized that without those clouds, I couldn't have captured this scene with godbeams。The clouds were blessing in disguise。
