What is, and isn't worth making an image possible.

So, one of the comments I receive most commonly is ‘Hurry up’ or even ‘How long will you be?’.

These are fairly generic statements, usually being told to me by family members whom have taken time out of their ‘lazy day’, to accompany me to the literal middle of no-where, where there is too much wind, rain and the need/ability of wanting to go to the toilet… but being stuck on a beach, or the classic statement ‘I'm cold’ which usually means I’m bored, these are all what I’m being told most commonly due to the nature of photography being an extremely introverted hobby. What’s my reasoning behind ‘torturing’ my friends, family and who else dares to join me on my outings to the deepest darkest depths of Suffolk.. well.

Let me tell you a story, only a few days ago I arrived back from my trip to Bawdsey — in which we walked a good 2-3 miles down the beach, personally I enjoy the walking side of it, rarely anyone does — but I think I do, apart from the blisters however.

It was stunning there, the perfect moody weather to compliment the high-tide we were constantly fighting against to obtain an image which my new camera *eeek being drowned by an optimistic angry wave, anyway. As we arrived, we realised we completely misjudged the tide patterns and we had arrived at the highest-tide, this accompanied by the high-wind and the met-office 80% chance of rain, it was a day that could go either way.

One of my main realisations that day was that how dangerous it can be to get somewhere, for only 1 imaginable image.

This was that image, after 10 minutes of horrible sidewards rain.. a rainbow appeared!

So, back to the title ‘What is, and isn't worth making an image possible?.’

Well.

I think it was worth it.
