A picture is worth a thousand words and sometimes they are worth even more than that. Photographers strive to get the perfect shot – in fact they can spend their entire careers in search of it. Trying to find that ideal angle, the perfect lightning, the best focus, the most intriguing subjects and most of all the most amazing timing. Afterall, in a world where everyone is walking around with a smartphone, what can be considered new and exciting? Sometimes a good photographer can take the mundane and give it a new spin into something brilliant. Other times they are simply in the right place at the right time. However they manage it, they produce some of the most stunning works of art imaginable.
In this video we will take a look at ten mind blowing photos taken at just the right moment. Many of these photographers sat for hours or even days at a time to capture their moments. Others were simply lucky. Afterall, how many people can say that they witnessed a flying shark or the sixth Olympic ring? From amazing feats of nature, to cleverly lined up shots, all the way to never before seen imagery and dumb luck timing. One photographer even waited 40 years to capture his moment. He studied weather patterns and waited years for the perfect time to line up his shot. That kind of dedication is simply astonishing. However those lucky few who simply stumbled into their shots should also be applauded for their quick thinking and ability to adapt to their suddenly changing environment.
