Amid the hustle and bustle this time of year, it’s a quiet sunset over the ocean.
The sun is sinking in a bright orange sky over another wilderness 9,000 miles away from my last post featuring a desert in Western Australia. Pictured here are the badlands of California’s Anza-Borrego State Park at the westernmost edge of the Sonoran Desert.
The warm glow of sunset silhouettes a row of limestone pillars in Western Australia’s ancient Pinnacles Desert. The pinnacles were formed by strong winds blowing in from the Indian ocean and eroding the surrounding sand. Thousands of these formations spread across the desert floor.
The setting sun is giving an otherworldly look to this pleasant spot in Laguna Beach, California.
This surreal sunset leans more toward digital art than photography, although it had its origins in a long exposure after a coastal storm. Photography does lend itself to experimentation!
These two warm glowing sunsets might provide some calm during this busy holiday season. Busy at least in the two places where the photos were taken–Australia and the United States.
East Point Reserve Park, Darwin, Australia.
Peters Canyon Regional Park, Orange, California.
Land, Sea and Sky
Soon after leaving the beach of shells from yesterday’s post, the lighting turned to twilight.
Then the finale for the day on the shore of the Indian Ocean was streams of light falling through openings in the passing clouds.
