The ocean is loud yet the world feels quiet. The sound of the wind and the waves is a great white noise that blocks out the world, the voices, the concerns. For a spell every voice and thought in my head is silenced, as I stand in the waves letting this wonder of Mother Nature instill peace in every molecule of my being:
I rarely capture sunsets anymore, I would rather just experience them as I have plenty of sunsets in the library already. When it is this awesome though it would be a shame not to click the shutter once or twice. We have been fortunate to witness some amazing sunsets the past week in Broome. The image is a 17mm cropped wide angle view of a much larger 180 degree sunset over the horizon. It is a simple manual Photoshop layer blend of two exposures, one for just the extremely bright highlights, and one exposure for the rest. I am still toying around with this image in Photoshop but I doubt it needs much more work.
PS. ‘Tyst’ – The title is a Danish (and Swedish) adjective for silence.
