Camera was moved, intentionally. The best of two shots, blended.

  1. beautiful image…the red tones message sunset while the dark speaks of the shadows of night fall…then I found myself feeling a reflective message of today…the darkness of what is to come while the earth burns.

  2. I like the idea of the moving camera AND blending two shots. But this morning all I can think when I see these colors and I know it was done in California is fire. Maybe if you work on a series of blue and gray images and throw in a rain dance for good measure, the weather will get better.

    • Thank you very much. I completely understand. This particular shot was made before the fires started and is strictly sunset. But there are some images coming up that take us away from warm and hot colors.
