Solstice moons and butterflies
I am adding these photos to the photography print store.
This first photo was taken at the time of the winter solstice. The moon came up on this morning just before the sun did, making for great colors. I took several images and blended them into one. I really like the way it turned out.
This next photo was taken 3 days later, and the moon was setting when the sun set. Did you know the moon changes it’s rising and setting times by a whole hour everyday?
I used the same stacking technique with this image. Both of these photos can be purchased in the Sunrise/Sunset gallery.
I love butterflies. I found this butterfly one day when I was out walking. I carefully carried it home so I could photograph it. Since it was already dead, the wings would not fold flat. But I like this look anyway. I perched him on a piece of turquoise I found in the desert last year. I love these colors, the light in the wings, and the details.
These images can be found in the Beautiful Nature gallery.
And now I need your opinions. I have two photos from sunset the other night. The light changes so fast, so the colors change too. The first photo is lighter, and softer. The second photo is darker and has more shadows. I want to put one of them in the Deserts gallery available for sale. Which do you like the best? Or are they different enough to add them both to the gallery?
I added this photo to the gallery. The colors that night were perfect.
More photos to come. I have about wore out my camera lately.
