CAPTION

“The sky grew darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night.” 

― Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance 

 

BACKSTORY 

We hiked for about a half hour straight into a fierce headwind just as the sun was setting. With sand and dust blowing into my eyes I considered turning back; after all, there was no way even my sturdy tripod could keep the camera still for the long exposures needed to capture a sharp dusk image. But I kept pushing forward. 

We finally found the spot scouted by my friend Brad and started shooting. As predicted, I failed to get anything useful due to blurring effects of camera shake. Then, as twilight shifted to night, the wind just stopped. and I quickly captured this image just as the landscape caught the sunset’s final colors under a darkening cerulean sky. 

Brad and I looked at each other. “I think the wind is over,” I said. 

Seconds later it returned with renewed ferocity. 

“Jeff, you ruined it!” yelled Brad over the howling gale. 

I was flattered that Brad thought I had the power to Jinx the weather. I tried to convince him it was not my fault, but he wouldn’t hear it, or maybe couldn’t through the whistling roar.
