Today I came across the post of the weekly photo challenge at The Daily Postand also if this is the theme for last Wednesday April 19 and tomorrow would be a new theme, I still want to participate to this one, with one of my latest photo and share the beauty of nature with you all.
From The Daily Post: The theme for this week is “Earth” celebrating the Earth Day and our planet. This week, share an image that means “earth” to you — whether it’s a panorama of a landscape that takes your breath away, a close-up revealing a detail in nature, or another scene that honors the outdoors, we welcome your takes on the theme!
The photo I am sharing today is a beautiful Southern California sunset filled with lovely yellow flowers. I took this photo some days ago during my daily evening hike. I love my walk at sunset time it give me the opportunity to take beautiful photos of sunsets and fierce colored skies. California is a wonderful place for sunset photography no matter where you are if on the hills or near the ocean. This photo was taken on the hills of a trail I love to go. The nature here is beautiful lately especially after all the rain we had a month ago, everything turned out beautifully green a joy for the eyes since here often the hills looks yellow brownish and dry.
I enjoyed my walk a lot lately with these beautiful kind of evenings, but this week is already getting too warm and everything is already changing color.
When I took this photo, I really wanted to capture all the elements that makes our earth beautiful, the orange fierce sunset sky, the clouds, the land and the flowers. I almost felt I was creating one of my paintings, I had a clear idea of how I wanted the photo to be. To get this angle for my shot I had to almost laying on the ground! Turned out exactly what I’ve envisioned! I hope that you enjoy this portrait of nature as symbol of our precious Earth as much as I do.
Today I love to celebrate the Cappuccino Day and I am joining Charlie at doodlewash for this day of November Adventure!
I haven’t made a new watercolor because I am still recovering from InkTober lol 😉 kidding! I love this one very much. I painted it on last July for the wonderful #WorldWatercolorMonth I remember that was a very loved painting. So I decided to repost it as much I wanted to paint a new one!
I was born in Italy how I cannot love coffee and cappuccino, nonetheless espresso and all the kinds! It’s always time for a cup of coffee! 🙂
Today I had to celebrate while sipping a wonderful cup with all of you! ❤
H.A.P.P.Y. H.A.L.L.O.W.E.E.Neveryone! ❤
I wish you all a wonderful and safe evening have fun and like a friend said to me…
today don’t forget to turn on a candle to symbolise illumination of the spirit within! ❤
Today for my #NatureDoodlewash hike, I am going to share one of my latest watercolor it was a joy to make this one. A portrait of a “Red-Breasted California Bird” . Here in California I don’t have to go too far of a hike to see them. When is their time, I can see them very often. I have seen many beautiful Red-Breasted birds, there are some very small size and some just a normal bird size this one I painted is the normal size. They are so beautiful to watch chirping and being busy over the tree branches, that red color pops so nicely, they totally inspired me to paint their beauty.
Today I also like to share with you that one of my short stories “Memories of Happiness” has been published yesterday on VisualVerse Anthology Press, where Art meets Words. What they are doing is interesting and challenging if you like you can read my post and my story here.
