Seeing “Windy Night”

I have learned to let go of any expectations when I set out to see and possibly make a photograph.  A few years ago I arrived on Nantucket Island with ideas of images filled with sea grasses, waves, and sunset light.  Soon after the weather quickly turned into a wild, windy, and wet storm.  The island was hunkered down and I was bummed.  I could not make the photographs in my head.  I remember the moment when I shook off my disappointment and decided to go for the essence of storm.  From that point on I learned to let go of my pre-conceived images and enter a place wide-eyed and curious about what it had to offer.
