On to the showcases from last week...
Brighton at Simple Brighton
The light in this photo is stunning! I love how dreamy it feels and how the black and white enhances the lovely light. Thank you for sharing Brighton!
A beautiful use of depth of field to showcase amazing detail. The shapes and the softness of the black and white add so much to this photo. Thank you for sharing!
Deb at Simplify Daily Life
I love the processing on this photo! The color and texture work perfectly with the whimsy of a ferris wheel. Thank you for sharing your photo Deb!

This weekend was one of my last trips of the summer. I decided on a whim to go to the beach to catch the sunset. The sunset was an interesting one as there was a bank of clouds near the horizon (I plan on sharing some photos of it later in the week). I was a bit disappointed as I was not able to get the shot I wanted. Driving toward home, however, I turned down a side street on another whim and found the sun setting behind Sunset Lake (what a perfect name :o)!) with a gorgeous reflection and a bit of fog. What struck me was the stillness and serenity of watching a painting revealed before my eyes. My intention was to somehow capture that feeling. How do you think I did?
Settings: ISO 400, 32mm, ss1/4sec, f/9.0 (on tripod, remote)
"The point is that when I see a sunset or a waterfall or something, for a split second it's so great, because for a little bit I'm out of my brain, and it's got nothing to do with me. I'm not trying to figure it out, you know what I mean? And I wonder if I can somehow find a way to maintain that mind stillness." - Chris Evans
