In a moment of despair over whether I should continue doing landscape work I managed to make this image last night of the fading sunset over Lake Champlain. I was getting out of work and noticed these clouds forming over the lake and I thought to myself what a great sunset that is shaping up to be. The sun is setting a little after 8 p.m. now and with it being 7:45 when I left work I had little time to see let alone make an image of this sunset.
With little time to spare and less to compose I had a window of about 2 minutes to make a shot and sure enough right after I got this image the clouds broke up and the color faded. My photographic intuition served me well here as I wasnt feeling particularly excited at shooting last night…I have been thinking about if I want to starve for the next ten years shooting landscapes and nature or if I want to move on to some other areas of interest in photography.
My future is so uncertain but it is these types of images that “right the ship” so to speak in my mind about my work and where it is going. I gave this one a little love in Focal Point 2 to give it a little bit of a dreamy quality to it… Enjoy!
