Photographers love sunrise and sunset photo opportunities because of the special light and vibrant colors. I’ve made many that are very unique in that regard. Clearly “keepers.” But the simple photo I made a few mornings ago made me feel “peaceful“ after I downloaded it into Lightroom on my iPad. It isn’t that great, but I need scenes like this to put my mind in order, as we continue to be stressed during 2020.
I saw this composition looking out the kitchen window last evening. I almost missed the light. Setting sun happens in seconds.
While wandering about the edge of a wooded area I came upon a fallen dead tree that was potentially blocking my way. I wasn’t going to walk into the woods so it was no obstacle, but it was a nice photo opportunity … especially the way sunlight was filtering through overhead tree limbs.
Folks like me who love landscape photography this time of year in SW Virginia have to be excited by what we’re beginning to see. A lot more to come.
