Photo Experiment

I don't know if this is a real photograph or created by someone but I just love it.  It was going around in December labeled as 'Winter Solstice'.  I wondered if a person could actually get a shot like this in real life.

I was doing the dishes late one afternoon and looked out the kitchen window and saw the sun setting.  This was the day of the snowstorm.  Still a little too bright though.

This was the next day....the snow had melted off the trees but it was a little darker out.  I'd still like to work on getting this shot but I will only be able to get it in January and have to hope that there's snow!

    1. The post storm sunsets have been magnificent. As sick of snow as I am, the air does feel and smell so fresh afterwards.

    1. It's a shame I only get about 3 or 4 days to see the sun in this exact position in winter. It probably looked stunning from the beach but it was too cold to drive over there. I took these from my kitchen window which is why they are a little blurry. lol

  4. Wow! Those are great photos JoJo! I'd seen that top photo too and wondered how they did it. Maybe it's not such a mystery after all having seen your beautiful photos. :)

  6. First one looks like it's had 'help', but that doesn't detract from how awesome it is!

  9. Wow! You have such a great photographer's eye... I thought the first pic was a digital painting... yours are much more realistic.
