Photography Tip: If you are looking strictly for exceptional light, you can more often than not find a good photograph. Likewise, if you teach yourself to look strictly for the simplest of compositions, you can frequently find a compelling photograph.

Great light is present, a simple composition exists, and a photograph with artistic qualities is the result. I’m sorry to say a photo such as this may not appeal to the masses, but some will get it.  And I know I do remember the connection with Nature on that beach Up North and that makes it a valuable photograph to me…
