Another from my escape to the Grand Canyon. I always wanted a shot of me walking down the middle of the road, going off into the distance. So I had my mom take this shot for me and I think it came out pretty well. And what makes it even better is that it was taken on Route 66. I like the darkness that the clouds creates as it’s a little more ominous, but there’s also a patch of light that seems to give hope.
If you can’t tell, I like the sunset and clouds, especially together. This was walking to my car after class one day and the sunset was shining right through some of the clouds. It created this and I like how there’s kind of just a little circle of light that seems to be illuminating everything else around it. I’ve always liked the contrast between light and dark clouds in the sky, kind of makes it seem like, “Even in the darkest of times, there’s always light.” Which I think is a cool and true motto that tells us we shouldn’t ever give up because there’s always some good thing out there.
From a couple weeks ago. I was walking my dog and decided to take a picture of the lake. Although I don’t totally enjoy Irvine, I do believe it to be a very scenic place. There are a lot of things that add to the beauty of it, the lakes as one example. It was a little bit gloomy that day, but I still thought it looked good. And being able to look over the lake while walking and seeing the bridge in the middle and with the hills in the far background, it looks pretty cool. I think it’d be super cool to have one of the houses on the lake, must be a nice view all the time.
A simple picture, I was just walking down the street when I brought my eyes up for a second to look at the light, and saw it shining like this through the clouds. It was very bright, but it was beautiful. The way it shines through the clouds, and illuminates them creating a halo effect, it’s just so cool. It’s so simple and passable, but it’s just something that when you take the time to notice it, it is truly amazing and beautiful. We should all take time to see the natural beauty around us in our lives everyday, and I think this is the perfect example.
