Favorite Photo of the Week: Enumclaw Sunset Edit 08.21.11

It has been quite the week with meeting my future students and getting my classroom ready for the upcoming school year. With all the stressors I have been grateful to have this outlet through my photography and the blog. There is something about the creative process of composing a shot, shooting it, editing it and sharing that is good for my soul. One unexpectedly wonderful outcome of this whole process has also been learning from other photographers who not only have exquisite work, but are more than happy to share what they know. I am continuing to enjoy this journey and look forward to what will come!

My favorite photo of this week is a sunset photo, which I am sure is shocking after a week's worth of them ;o). I picked the photo I posted yesterday of my creative edit of one of my sunset photos. I LOVE the colors as my favorite color is purple and how even with the over the top colors, the integrity of the composition remains. Mother Nature can put on a beautiful show! Mother Nature can also put on a scary show. I know I will be sending thoughts and prayers to all those on the east coast as they endure Hurricane Irene. I hope you will do that same and that they will stay safe as they weather the storm.
