A Farewell In Beauty

Same edits here, but a mix of warm and cool tones.

A different day these next few were taken, same edits applied - this in warm tone.

The concept for this project was to capture the beauty of sunsets in my podunk area that I live in. It's important to me because not many people get to enjoy the calmness of such a scene in life, most seek the falseness that can be fabricated to fill a void one is feeling in their lives. In order to fix this, I sought to draw out the radiant colors and emotions that accompany the sun in its final moments in the sky before the bright moon takes its place. I want the viewer to understand it doesn't take much to step outside into nature to feel at peace, to try and fill that emptiness with temporary things - it only takes a moment to feel the warmth of the sun.
