Journey of a body on this earth

Channeling Color


This image was created from a shot I took up on Mt. Diablo of the sun setting over the valley.Β  I love this time of evening…it’s so quiet and the burst of color before nightfall is like one last yawn before bedtime.

  1. Like a painting πŸ™‚

  2. Really beautiful effect, gorgeous colours πŸ™‚

  3. And you channel it so well! I love these colors…a warm sunset over the prairie…See I “look” first and then read…now I see my interpretation was spot on. πŸ™‚

  4. LM…..just a beautiful way for me to start an otherwise gloomy day! thanx…jim

  5. Lovely impressionistic piece πŸ™‚

  6. Absolutely stunning! So incredibly beautiful. And I love, love, love your analogy of the color before nightfall being like one last yawn! Perfect!

  7. I may be off on my art schools, but this is a great foray into abstract expressionism. I feel like you took a chance with this one and for me the image really pays off – I like the overall warmth with a touch of a contrasting cool tone in the upper left. I’d get a large Giclee print made and frame this one – I can see it hanging above a double sided fire place in a modernist interior.

  8. This is so comforting, Laura. Outstanding job you have done again. Loe, Amy

  9. Fabulously painterly!

  10. Laura this is the most brilliant description of a sunset I have ever read…”the burst of color before nightfall is like one last yawn before bedtime.” …. brilliant…

  11. A picture is worth a thousand words? Well then, why not a thousand +? I am of the opinion that, a description of the struggle to get the shot, or the process afterwards, or the emotion you felt while shooting, only adds to the enjoyment of the image. Keep on writing. And photographing. You have a gift!

  12. Beautifully dreamy…I really like this one (and your description)!

  13. very nice, some interesting processing.

  14. It does look like a lovely water color painting.

  20. Beautiful Laura! It reminds me of a series David DuChemin has done recently called ‘Whiskey Shots” πŸ™‚

  21. Absolutely beautiful! The golden hour is my favorite time also. The color is amazing.

  22. Very nice shot, really like the effect.

  23. This is great. I love abstracts

  24. One usually associates photography with detail, so the use of a photograph as a way of abstraction is a nice surprise.

  25. I love the abstract of this. Gorgeous colour.

  26. Thanks very much for the totally absorbing offering and for the inspiration to explore more abstract avenues!

  27. That was one glorious yawn Laura πŸ˜‰
