Turning a Lemon Into Lemonade

This weeks blog is about how I turned a lemon into lemonade. The picture to your left was taken in Antelope Canyon in Page Arizona.
I had waited for quite awhile to set up this photograph of a sunbeam coming down through the slot canyon. At the very instant that I had
snapped the shutter, a man tossed up some dirt into the air to capture the sunbeam better. This was in the days of film, so needless to say I
was not happy when I had returned home to discover an up reached hand in my picture. This picture sat in my collection for quite a long time before I finally took a second look at it and realized that this particular picture with a little bit of Photoshop might make an interesting composition.
It quickly became one of my favorite shots of Antelope Canyon, and became the basis for the motivational saying.

Before you throw out a picture that looks like a reject, keep it a while, you may just see it in a different light (pardon the pun).
