Star Set

Posted on Jul 29, 2016

The sun has never looked more like a star than in this sunset! I recently photographed the bright glowing globe in these shots by aiming the camera at it rather than looking through the viewfinder, and thankfully the horizon helped make it a bigger target. As it dropped behind the trees it slowly lost intensity and became a perfect orange orb.

Aren’t we lucky to have such a close friend? It is obvious, but it is unfathomable how perfectly our neighborhood sorted itself out. It is our job to make sure we take care of our house here on the Earth, and we have to start doing better! We cannot let the sun down.
