I live for rocks and sunsets. never gets old. <3

a. second variation during sunset. notice the HUGE burn scaring on the background mountains.

b. third variation. post sunset. + remote flash

c. third variation. chillin in the dark.

despite everything being fine, sky on fire, i changed the arrangement mid sunset because i wanted to see without the blocky rock.

removing one rock and flipping the rock below it (right <–> left), while keeping everything above the blocky rock more or less the same, made a huge change in the flow and CURVE of the finished arrangement. not to mention i enjoy racing the sun. :))

if you’re curious, the FIRST variation (not pictured here) was exactly like the second, but minus the third rock down (the long rounded rock hanging out to the right)

favorite variation? definitely the third. (thanks to trusting my impulse)

favorite atmosphere? during sunset.
but it’s all pretty damn beautiful. <3

Colorado Springs, CO, USA

This visit to Colorado Springs was to help care for a family member during surgery. So i figure, I can worry, which is generally a “misuse of imagination”, or I can practice peace and positivity while at the same time putting forth healing intentions. <3

  1. Not just beautiful, but make a person feel peace and connection and bring a smile. I don’t think there are words to explain really, but thank you for sharing!
