This week's shoot out theme is courtesy of Sherri of Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.... "What's not to love about sunrises and sunsets? My favorite times of the day for a photo shoot are the early morning and late afternoon because the constantly changing play of light on and around the objects I am shooting. I love the silver and sepia tones of of the sky and water a couple of hours before sunset and the purples, corals and pinks of the setting sun against azure skies. My husband and I love living close to the Gulf of Mexico in our picturesque little city which is built around 4 salt water bayous off the Anclote River where it meets the Gulf. We have vacationed in the Hawaiian Islands often and the sunrises and sunsets with the added elements of mountain peaks are equally stunning. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's sunrises and sunsets!"
I encourage you to go and see everyone's contributions here!
I have many photos of far flung places with sunsets and sunrises, but this was taken in my town, at sunset, about four years ago and was not altered in any way. I have an entire series of this one evening, and I love the clouds in them all, but with this one you get a sense of the hills surrounding the valley where we live.
