Water always has a relaxing feeling to it. Whether on the beach, by a lake, or just taking a shower, water relaxes me. Sunsets are simply beautiful too, and my favorite time of day. This picture was taken in Søro, Denmark. It is a small town, with a renouned academy and a beautiful lake. The summer evening walk around the lake was a great way to relax after a day of playing tourist and driving.
I like the contrast in this picture and the way the silhouette of the trees frames the sun. While I enjoy sunset pictures, I think it is often wise to add an element that makes it unique. While I framed the sun with the trees purposely, I recently noticed that the leaves seem to be holding the sun. That is a nice effect that I didn’t intend. While it is nice to get the results you want in a photo, a pleasant surprise is always nice.
