I shot this photograph of Wolfe Glade with my iPhone during a walk on the Junction & Breakwater trail. When I arrived at the bridge on the way out, the scene was overcast and gloomy. The phone’s camera images looked gray, dull and uninteresting, setting a tone for what might be the day’s overall experience. Later, on the way back, just as I approached the bridge, the sky opened up and presented this dramatic view. I felt a sense of wonder, amazement and surprise at how a little bit of sunlight (and some lucky timing) can brighten one’s day.
