Capturing the moment

It was one of those moments you could have waited days for.
We had just had a heavy squall. It stopped and the sun peaked out for a moment. It was still. The light was fantastic, clear, bright yet soft.
The tide was coming in. The sailing boats were being gently lifted from their afternoon rest and looking at their reflections in the still waters. The wading birds were moving nearer up the mud bank feverishly poking into the mud.
The clouds were in uncertain mood, some still angry some bright and fluffy.
And I was there to capture it!
