The image above was taken at twilight down at the Jersey shore (Harvey Cedars). As the sun set, the sky and water began this almost psychedelic inversion of colors that was so spectacular it was hard to put into words. I joked to my friends that if you took a picture no one would believe that you didn't photoshop those colors.
Well ... I did photoshop them ... just enough to fix a slight white-balance offset, that is. But other than that I didn't touch a thing. The lavender and pink sky against the teal-ish green-blue water. The horizon inverted. The sky became darker than the water. Surreal. And beautiful. God's tapestry.
Add the smell of the ocean, perfect 72 degree temperature, a perpetually blowing sea breeze and ... well ... I think that just might be a small slice of heaven!
For me, that's when photography is such a joy. In those magic light moments. You might argue that it takes no skill to make gorgeous pictures that way ... and you'd be right.
So what. They're still gorgeous :)
oh, one more :)
