Photo of the Week: Elif's Simplicity. Wait for your perfect moment.

Sometimes you have to wait for the best moments to take a great shot. This one is no exception. I captured this shot while on assignment with The Soul Sail near Anegada Island, British Virgin Islands.


I was on a boat and we had pulled up and docked at one of the boys off the island. Anegada Island is a low lying island with shallow water around which makes for some ultra light turquoise water colour. 

To make the shot work, I waited for Elif's boat to arrive and drop anchor. Elif is helping the skipper with depth and starting the anchor motor. 

I love the simplicity of this shot with the clear separation of sea and sky and the warm shadow-free sun light time of day.
