This breathtaking sunset photo of a spaceship is a great example of perfect timing
If you need a break from whatever Earthly news is terrifying you today, might I suggest the stellar photo above? It’s even better in super high resolution — see for yourself. Click, breathe, and be awed. This is a picture of the Orbital Cygnus spacecraft as it approached the International Space Station this weekend. It’s not a fantastic image because of some particularly deft use of basic photographic technique. Rather, it stands apart because of the wonderful timing. Stress about the basics of photography all you want, but they’ll only get you so far without good timing and, sometimes, a little bit of luck.
