Sugarloaf Rock

Sugarloaf Rock


Persistence and resilience are crucial for growth, especially in the world of photography, where challenges are a regular occurrence. Sometimes, even the most careful planning can be undone by unpredictable elements, such as cloud coverage.


To capture Sugarloaf Rock, I traveled five hours by plane and then drove another three hours south. Upon arrival, I was greeted by a continuous stretch of clouds along the coastline, which persisted throughout my entire stay. Despite anticipating that I might get at least one clear night, luck was not on my side.


A year later, I returned to Sugarloaf Rock, hoping to finally capture the elusive panorama. I had only one night to attempt it, as my road trip was filled with other destinations. The weather was once again rainy and cloudy, but I noticed a potential break in the cloud cover on the radar. Though I had been misled by the radar before, I decided to wait patiently, hoping for the best.


After two hours, the rain stopped, and I saw stars beginning to twinkle between the clouds. My persistence and patience had finally paid off. I climbed down the rocks into position, watching as the Milky Way gradually revealed itself against the clearing sky.


With excitement and relief, I captured the panoramic image of Sugarloaf Rock that had eluded me for so long. This experience served as a powerful reminder of the importance of persistence and patience in the face of adversity, not only in photography but also in life.
