Sunset Magic

Page 26

 

Good morning from a beautiful sunny day from Hastings.

Yet another nail biting morning this morning.  Yesterday’s racing was canned due to poor weather conditions.  Everywhere people were sitting in front of the TV only to see nothing in the end.  I can only imagine what the teams are both feeling.  But anyway good luck to Emirates Team New Zealand.

I love sunrises and sunsets.  There is something magic and spiritual in seeing the colours come out when the sun comes up or goes down.  During the winter it was great to be able to go out at a civilised time just to see the sun come up.  Equally the time was good for the sunsets.  I can’t describe the feeling I get just seeing the majesty of the event.

This image was taken on the 9th September.  I loved the way the rays of the sun come up through the clouds.This was the original image.

I then edited it with Photoshop to get this image.

Sun 2

I added it as a background but used the transparency tool just a smidgen to tone the colours a bit.

The photo is the same image.  The backing card is this paper from another image I had edited.

Sunset by numbers

 

The font is the Great Victorian font.

Now to bring the cup home to New Zealand.

Cheers and have a nice day
