Most of the time I’m skychasing, I use my iPhone 7 to capture the images — especially for its ease of shooting panoramas. I’ll jump out of my car, take a few shots, then jump back behind the wheel to my next vantage point. Every so often, the shutter will delay on the last click and I’ll find a photo of the ground or my pocket on my camera roll. Most of the time, it’s a deletable image, but tonight the blurred combination of light, grass, and gravel caught my eye.
Sometimes, accidental beauty will surprise me in the simplest ways.
