When I'm looking for potential scenes to photograph, I'm rarely thinking first about my subject; rather, I am following the light. I discuss this concept more in-depth in my latest blog For Better Images, Follow The Light

I captured this scene of these beautiful crepuscular rays on a late afternoon near my home in Hollister, California. I didn't think, "I want to photograph a vineyard," it just happened to be there when I spotted these rays!
