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.

Digital Art – Moon on Water

Moon on Water
Moon on Water

In this Digital Art creation I wanted to emphasize the fascinating beauty of the full moon, positioning the moon in a surreal place, down on the earth, like it is almost possible to touch it. I combined the beautiful natural elements, of a forest with a water stream embracing the glowing moon. I always love to gaze at the moon, it is very inspiring and so fascinating.

I want to thank you so much HeavyCloud for your kindness on letting me use one of your wonderful and precious photos, this full moon. When I saw this stunning photo on your Blog I felt that I wanted to create one of my Digital Art paintings with it. And here it is the moon is the main element in my creation Grazie!
