Sunset at Muriwai

with 6 comments

Though it wasn’t an especially good day for a sunset, I still got a pretty nice sunset photo. I just love the reflections in the little stream that flattens as it finally makes its way from the hillside to the sea.

Sunset gets all the praise, but to be honest, I often think the most beautiful moments come after the sun has set, when the last rays cling to the darkening sky. Like this…

Just like this…

The other day one of the photography blogs I follow, Less is More, put up a beautiful shot of some backlit people and cactus and the way the sun caught their silhouettes, it appeared they had halos. I loved the shot and was a wee bit envious, in the gentlest kind of way, where I tack a note in my brain reminding me to give that a go myself.

I am still going through my photos from my trip down to Wanaka at the end of May and came upon this idyllic, rather painterly shot of a couple of sheep grazing on a steep hill just in the early morning, backlit and all aglow! I would describe my joy as veritably frabjus! What pastoral bliss… And evocative of the early impressionists. Indeed, on another day I might have taken this into photoshop and added some brush strokes or other embellishments, but I don’t think this really needs it…
