This photo was taken on my back porch. We live on a farm, and I feel like this picture shows that. You have the trailers and barn in the background, the cows if you look closely, and our farm truck. I love being able to see the firewood at the edge of the picture; it gives it a natural feel. I was shocked at how gorgeous this view was, it was so bright and vibrant and I had never seen such a view before, it made me happy. I love this picture, sunsets are so unique and you never know how they’re gonna look that evening.
Photography gives me joy. I love being able to capture God’s artwork through camera, even though no matter how hard I try I can never capture exactly how beautiful it is. Although photography is amazing and I love it, there is nothing like being able to feel the true warmth of the scene shining on your face. With this lilac sky, I feel that happiness.
