There is this certain fascination that everyone has with sunsets. If you asked me a couple months ago, I would say well yeah of course I love sunsets. Everyone does. Now I love sunsets for new reasons aside from its pure beauty.
First, I'm a night-owl. One would think that after I'm done with my day job, I would probably relax, make dinner, workout, whatever it may be. NOPE. I get amped up because I catch my second wind and that's when the inspiration begins. I walk home from work observing people around me, looking for new shots to take with my camera, and then think about what I can get done whether it's writing, editing, or Darwin. I find nighttime to be invigorating because I get to reminisce on the highs of my day, then start thinking about what I want to accomplish the next day. I found that writing down my goals for the next day no matter how little or big they may be, motivated me to check them off each and every day.
Secondly, I love sunsets because as I have said before, I picked photography back up. I used to take photography classes in high school, and with my busy schedule I lost one of my favorite hobbies while in college. It's been a goal of mine to take the time to edit at least one video or photo each day to keep practicing and keep improving. THat's the big goal you would find on my list.
A couple days ago it was 60 degrees and sunny here in Denver. It was the first time in a long time that I was able to get off work early and boy did I take advantage of that. The sun was stunning, and I rushed home so I could get on the rooftop to take some pictures. I don't know why some photographers don't like sun flares because I'm obsessed with them. I love the way the light reflects off the buildings, and accentuates the mountains in the background. Take a look at some of the shots I got!
Also, if any of you are photographers PLEASE reach out to me. I want to learn something new about photography or editing every day. So, any tips are welcome here.
