Taken at an unnamed beach on the northeast shore of Lake Tahoe. This was during a tremendous windstorm where I took a chance the clouds would break up enough to display a nice sunset. What I got instead was a shrouded peek of what it looks like on the other side. The waves were pounding and the water was being picked up off the lake and spraying me. I spent the first half hour I was there wiping and defogging my lens. 450 second exposure 10 stop B+W neutral density filter at F11 and 100 iso, and composed with a prayer.
I named it "Hope" because despite the chaotic conditions that were present, you can a see break in the storm - sort of a "light at the end of the tunnel" - in this case, very colorful light, like seeing a rainbow at the end of a thunderstorm. It tells us that tomorrow is going to be a better day - that in all this chaos there is still Hope.
