Weekly Photo Challenge: Out Of This World

Sunset From Another Planet – Photo ©CarolinaRusso

Today post is about Photography!

It is a long time since I have participated to the weekly photo challenge.  The Daily Post  theme for this week it is very interesting  and inspiring and is “Out Of This World”. This week, share a picture that takes us on a journey into the unknown.

As an artist I feel that I am very often out of this world, while working on my watercolor paintings, creating my art. Inspiration and creativity can take you in many places where imagination rules  into the unknown. I enjoy the journey following my dreams and looking forward to see where they will take me.

The photo I am sharing today for this challenge, is another  gorgeous Southern California sunset. I took this photo days ago during an evening hike. The colors of this sunset were spectacular and I haven’t touched or edited this photo, no filter has been used,  it is just as I took it!

When shooting this photo, I really wanted to capture something different and unusual. I love to experiment and take photos in different and unexpected angle, using the camera in strange and unusual positions. When I went home, l have been looking at all the photos I took that day,  this one stood out to me for the beautiful intense colors, the contrast with the dark, the layers of clouds in the sky forming straight lines at the horizon. My angle shooting position created this high contrast and a diagonal  effect between the orange sky and the dark land. Transforming a familiar sunset in something different.  When I look at the photo from distance make me think an imaginary  sunset from another planet! Try to step away from your chair and look at the photo from distance, what do you see? I am really curious to know, please leave comments!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth – A Blossomed California Sunset In April…

A Blossomed Sunset In April – Photo ©Carolina Russo

Today I came across the post of the weekly photo challenge at The Daily Post and 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.

April Poetry Month – Overwhelming Beauty

Tramonto1


Overwhelming Beauty

The sunset light was approaching
the soft curved hills.
Evening was entering like a fierce painting
in the sky.

How amazing colors
in a new dimension that only
nature and someone above
has the power to create.

I felt that overwhelming presence
a strange feeling surrounded me,
all over like holding me
in a tight and breathtaking embrace

excitement and power for
something that I see unbelievable unreal
but truly real.

I am glad I was there
grabbing the drops of this
overwhelming beauty.

Poetry – Crystals

Be like water

 

 

Crystals

translucent surface
of an inner energy

powerful light
radiating rays of depth
in the history of nature

sun reflection and donation
of universal love
for the humanity to hold

a cosmic revelation
sometimes unknown
like puzzle pieces to find
within our soul

awareness will come
with perception and feelings
love is power
light will shine

*✿*

Hills_Sunset

Today I want to share this beautiful photo I took last night at the sunset.
Almost every night we go on a hike on the hills around the area and I am experiencing some of the most amazing sunsets! Yesterday when I took this shot I was all the way on top of one of the hills. I took this photo with my phone quickly without thinking too much, I just wanted to grab that beautiful moment and the lovely colors in the sky. When I came back at home I opened the photo on my computer and with a beautiful surprise I see that I have been able to capture that amazing red sun ray I found it to be so beautiful and amazing like a Divine sign. I didn’t edit this photo at all it is just as I captured it. I like the time spent hiking those hills it is a great way to workout and it is beautiful to be immersed in the wild nature, there is silence up there a place to meditate and listen the inner voice of your soul blending with the wind.

Over the Hills

This is another photo I took a while ago on the same Hills and it is almost on the same spot I took the shot of the sunset.  This one was taken few months ago at early time when the sun was still high in the beautiful blue sky.

Walking on the hills Photo #2

Walking on the hills Photo #2

Yesterday evening I went for a walk on the hills…this walk was amazing!
I was at the right place at the right time. Just in time to see one of the most spectacular Sunset I have experienced here. California it is known for having amazing sunsets, but yesterday was something else. I couldn’t believe what was happening in a few minutes time frame. The photos I took with my phone are beautiful and I left them just as is. I didn’t edit with Photoshop or added any filters. I just added my signature I wanted to be able to share what was the sky was really this color was so intense and red that it was just so beautiful! I got inspired to write the poem “Overwhelming beauty” I hope you enjoy this and I wish you a wonderful day!
