Catching the wave

This week’s challenge from the Daily Post is for something that is against the odds.

I use my Sony phone to take photos. Although I have been using it to take hundreds of photos, I have not yet discovered how to remove the shutter delay function. So I touch the screen and a second or two later a picture is taken. There is much uncertainty about how a picture of a moving object will turn out.

There was a swell on the sea just after high tide with waves breaking as they reached the shore. My first picture captured some spray. Fewer than half my photos from the same day had any real breakers and only one in four had large ones. So to achieve an interesting photo at the first attempt was against the odds.

  1. Oh dear, how very frustrating! I would be annoyed if that happened to me. Wish I could help! Those kinds of things happen to me all the time on my laptop/phone – digital stuff is too clever for its own good sometimes …!
