And now, a slightly dramatic story of how, where, and when I took this photo:
I remember when I was taking this photo how cold it was outside. I asked my mom if we could drive out to this field so I could get some good photos of how beautiful sunset the sunet was that night. It was in January, I believe, and probably around 30 degrees out. I wasn't going to miss this sunset though, it was too pretty. The drive was very peaceful, an amazing way to cap off my day. As we pulled off to the side of the slightly icy and snowy road, I was able to take a second and look at what I wanted so badly to go out and see. It was absolutely beautiful that night, so beautiful that I could not believe my eyes. So, I took out my huge six-inch-long camera lens and got my camera ready to take some photos. I carefully put the camera's strap around my neck to keep it safe, and I lifted it up to my eyes to begin the little evening photo shoot. Little did I know how pretty the colors truly would look. I began playing around with angles and whatnot. I took some from ground level, holding the camera only a few inches from the ground. I did some zooming in a little extra toward the sun, pro tip: that's not a good idea, it hurt my eyes. All this was going to do for me at the time was give me a good photo to post on Instagram. I didn't know that it would evetually lead me to this. While I was putting everything away, I wondered if I had actually gotten any good pictures out of the little excursion. The camera bag was set lovingly on the backseat of the car, as not to get damaged by the bumpy road. Deciding I didn't actually want to put the camera away yet, I took it back out and brought it into my seat with me, leaving the camera bag and lenses in the back seat. I sat back in the car next to my mom, turned my camera on again, and began flipping through the photos. However, the camera screen was too small to see the true beauty, so I was a little disappointed. As we were driving back home the wonder and nervousness of whether I got the photos I wanted was starting to set in. Although it wasn't and overly long trip, I still didn't want it to be a poitless one. The drive was, again, very peaceful. It was quiet, nothing disturbing the peacefullness. At home, I reluctantly pulled the SD card out of my camera and started moving photos from the card onto my computer. Then it hit me. The absolute wonder that those photos held was overwhelming. I could see all of the details in the melted snow on the ground, the amazing gradient in the sky, the subtle textures in the sun and ground. I was actually satisfied with my photography for once.
I did not know that I would love it so much almost two years later. The fact that I have so many photos that I am super confident in is really amazing considering I'm self-taught and still have no idea what I'm actually doing.
Did you like my story? It was fun for me to write, so I hope you enjoyed it! I figured a dramatic sunset deserved a dramatic retelling of the story :P
This is another one of my favorite photos for many reasons. Just the way the sun subtly refects off the ground is so....perfect. I can't explain the reasons why I love it so much, all I can do is hope that you like it too!
The photo you will get after the purchase does not have the watermark on it. It is completely clear and vibrant!
