“I was shooting an assignment for the Smithsonian on historic sites and I arrived there the evening before the shoot. It had been stormy all night and was still raining when I got up. I never know what is going to happen with weather, so I made sure I was on site for the sunrise. The rain stopped for just about three minutes as the rising sun peeked through a split in the clouds, lighting the area with a glancing light. Just as quickly, the weather closed back in , the rain started again and I was done working for the morning. It was as if a light switch had been turned on and then quickly turned off. Amazing experience.”
