A lucky bonus!
Today I planned the afternoon shoot. I wanted to visit a local rock formation to get the late afternoon sun on them and that meant being well organised with my other late afternoon tasks, so I could get to the rocks at the appropriate time. The sun had been shining all day, and no clouds were around to mar the light. It all went as planned…..and then the unplanned happened!
I was looking at the rocks and thought I saw a flicker of movement – and sure enough, there was a little skink who had come out to bathe in the late afternoon sun. Quietly I slowly moved forward, and it stayed there long enough for me to get a few shots. It was the only wildlife I came across, and I was very grateful it chose that moment to reveal itself.
