I know I posted a sunset pic yesterday, but somehow I didn't think anyone would mind seeing 2 in a row, especially considering how ridiculous this sky is. This was taken in the middle of my trip this summer on my friend's ranch in Gardnerville, Nevada. I absolutely LOVED the time I spent in the desert, surrounded by animals and the mountains and I can't wait to go back. Everywhere you look, there is something beautiful or huge or amazing. Every sunset looks like a watercolor painting and I was lucky enough to capture so many amazing images while I was out there. I am excited to share them all with you once I finish editing! Enjoy day 3 of my Work in Progress week!
Day 2 of my Work in Progress Week is exactly what the title says: a San Francisco sunset. This is taken from Nob's Hill on the first leg of my West Coast Adventure this summer. San Francisco is a beautiful place, even in the hustle and bustle of the city; add the orange glow of the sun setting and you're guaranteed to capture something beautiful.
I know it's been awhile since I posted anything new. The truth is I have been really busy! I enlisted the help of a photo instructor to push me to the next level, technically and artistically, so I have been working really hard and learning A LOT. I've also done a bit of traveling, which means there are lots of new pics coming your way. Since I am learning all sorts of new editing tricks as well, the process is a lot more involved and it takes longer now for me to edit even one photo. I know with practice and time, the process will become easier and more second nature, but until then, please bear with me as the site is officially a "work in progress." That said, I wanted to show a little bit of what I have been up to lately, so every day this week, I will show one of my newer pics with a brief description.
Up first is this shot taken at Mono Lake in CA. It was about 100 degrees (no joke) and the sun was about as bright as it could be, which proved a bit of a challenge setting up this shot, but I think I was able to capture the true feel of the place even over-bathed in light; its pretty amazing actually. These structures called "tufa" which look like sandcastles, are all over the place and, I think, resemble ruins from some kind of ancient, salty, limestone-y world. VERY COOL. If you are ever in Eastern CA, check this place out. You will not be disappointed!
