These two photographs fulfill a very long standing hope that I would one day be in this place with my camera ready, and with the light doing what it's doing here.  The row of foreground trees grow along a little brook that bisects a meadow.  The mountain behind them is still a good way off, and when passing clouds very briefly subdued light on it, I was (at last) prepared to make the photograph.  It might seem surprising, but landscape and nature photographs can be as challenging as street, or sports photographs when the success or failure of the image depends on the critical timing of a "decisive moment".
