“Take Me Away”

Sunset at Gili Trawangan, Bali, Indonesia

The Story of "Take Me Away"

Relaxing on a hammock on the island of Gili Trawangan as the sunset transforms the sky... what could be better? How about a horse and rider approaching majestically at exactly the right time!

We can do so much as photographers to get "the shot."  You can arrange the composition, dial in the settings perfect, pop on the filters, introduce your subject just right, and still have the sunset whiff.  On the other hand, sometimes the sky becomes brilliant in the light of sunset but in the wrong direction of your foreground, or worse, when there is no foreground at all.

And then there are those times where everything lines up perfectly and the universe delivers the exclamation point.  This shot exemplifies exactly that.  The sunset was brilliant, the perfect hammock was open despite being incredibly popular most nights, and if that wasn't enough, in trots the exclamation.
