I clicked my shutter, waited for three seconds and gazed at my camera’s viewfinder. No good.

The image was muddled from the sea spray that pervaded my ND filter. I can see a ghost of a good photograph, but it really was not up to par. My thumb neared the delete button; I thought once, twice and thrice. I held off deleting the obscure picture.

And I’m glad I did. Sometimes, you just have to trust your instinct, how hazy it maybe.
