Catching the Moment

Catching the moment is critical for any photographer. If it becomes a good or interesting picture can be decided in a fraction of a second.

Recently I found myself waiting for a friend who decided to walk through 15 cm of snow to the top of Mount Kosiosko. Since I did not have the right shoes with me, I did not go with him and rather spend time in the late winter sun and watch the surrounding.

On the table next to me a crow was looking for leftovers. But rather then flying, it hopped down to the ground. My Leica CL was in my hand. So, while I missed the first ‘hop’ here it is on the second one to the ground.

Rather neat and while we may have all seen it somewhere, never observed.
