Brilliant End to a Beautiful Day

Yesterday’s post was of a bright sunrise.  Today’s post is of a brilliant sunset over Limekiln Lighthouse on San Juan Island.  Several people just hung around the lighthouse until the last rays of the sun receded.  The day was another wonderful gift!

St. Augustine Lighthouse With a Little Swirl

Does this look a little familiar?  Sometimes one gets lucky.  This image is a multiple exposure of the St. Augustine lighthouse combined with a B&W version of yesterday’s post.  I thought that that the unknown swirl image posted yesterday would make a good texture background for something.  I combined it with an image taken just a few frames earlier.  Magic happens sometimes.

Lesson Learned:  Take what each moment brings you and cherish it.

Limekiln Lighthouse Stimulus

131108_Limekiln Lighthouse by Karl G. Graf.


I haven’t been very active in expanding my photographic knowledge and experience during the last several months.  Something was always in the forefront.  I fell into a real slump.  When I did shoot, nothing seemed to pop out to me.  I continued following my favorite photographers on-line and became more and more envious on what they were doing.  My work seemed to be so mundane.

Today, I took a few moments to look back on some of my work last summer.  I saw this image of the Limekiln Lighthouse on San Juan Island and felt that it wasn’t so bad after all.  It provided me with a stimulus to go back out and continue to shoot and enjoy the outdoors that I love.
