Waiting for the Green Flash

It was cocktail hour on the evening before we left to come home from Rarotonga. No green flash this time as there was a bit much cloud ( or perhaps not enough rum).
There is something compelling about a sunset that forces a camera into your hand. I resisted it and was enjoying the company, the cocktails and the freedom to just watch and enjoy the play of the light. It was a fitting finale to a great week.
But I couldnt resist it completely so eventually I picked up my small camera and shot half a dozen frames as a pano stitch.
I almost felt annoyed with myself for giving in. My logic was if you want to photograph a sunset then do it properly. Scout a location with a compelling foreground, big camera on a tripod, mirror lock up, be there early, wait and hope. etc etcetc….Not just snap click.
When I processed this on my ipad something happened.
This just feels right
