Sometimes you just need to pay attention, and out of nowhere an opportunity emerges. A boat had just passed, and I happened to look in that direction and saw the waves echoing the rock formation.
Some skills are like riding a bike. Once you have mastered it, you will be able to pick it up again even after a long break. Other skills require that you practice them on a regular basis to be able to perform at a certain level, like playing an instrument or speak a foreign language. For me photography is in the latter category; it takes some practice to get back into the grove again.
