The clouds that settled over Bellingham Bay on Sunday morning began drifting into the Chuckanut Mountains by early afternoon. I was driving south on Chuckanut Drive at the time, through the place where the sunshine met the fog, breathless at the beauty of it and desperate for a place to pull over with my camera.
When I finally found a safe place, I thought, “The only thing that could make this shot better is a subject – a car or a bicyclist, maybe – driving through the light.”
Not even 60 seconds later, a car pulled up and a man said to me, “Great lighting! Do you want to use my girlfriend as a model?”
“Umm…yes…” Even now, with the picture as proof, I can’t believe that really happened.
Sometimes a prayer, a wish, or some seemingly insignificant request whispered up to God, does get answered.

Fantastic. And I love that your prayers were answered and a model materialized in front of your eyes. Absolutely gorgeous photo.
Thanks – me too! I can only hope that happens again when I’m in need.
Great work! I love it!
Beauty! What serendipity.
Thanks, Pam! Couldn’t believe my luck!
Stunning image – and what serendipity that you were offered a model just as one was required.
I think I should go ahead and ask for more things and see what I get. 🙂 A similar thing happened with the shot I posted last week, actually – the couple sitting at the end of the dock in the fog.
Wonderful composition Jolene! 🙂
Thank you, H.J.!
