Hello, everyone! What a fabulous day it is.
Third post already, check me out! I am absolutely loving running a blog. I love sharing my images with you all. More to come, I promise! I vow that I will be posting everyday, no matter how tiresome!
On the day of January 19th, I ventured outside, along with my camera (my pal and partner in crime), hoping to capture the sun setting. As I always do.
I figured it wouldn’t differ too much from all the other sunsets I have witnessed and experienced, but oh boy was I wrong. As the sun set, the sky developed an orange hue, cascading over all of Loughrea. It was the most beautiful sunset I have ever laid eyes on. The image doesn’t do it justice.
The entirety of my evening, I was following Swans, Ducks, and the descending sun; I was in my element, one with Nature. It was honestly breath taking, and one of the most memorable photograph sessions.
I didn’t want to go home, I wanted this to last forever. It was fantastical. The day the heavens opened. As I was walking along the edge of the lake, camera in tow, a lady passed me by and halted beside me whilst I captured the heavenly glow. She smiled and said to me ‘Isn’t this fantastic?’ I, of course, agreed. As she walked away, she raised her voice and told me ‘Remember this day, January 19th.’ And I haven’t forgotten it since.
As I dawdled home, a thought struck me ‘The beauty of nature can bring people together.’
January 19th, 2017 shall be etched in my memory forever. It proved to me how utterly beautiful both Nature and Life can be, even in the darkest of times. I am beyond thrilled I have photographic evidence of this special evening.
Isn’t photography just fantastic?
