Sunset Over Greenview!

The sunset over Greenview was beautiful; those gorgeous hues of the sunset landscape and the clouds creating what feels like a painting filled me with peace.

When I produced this photo, I couldn’t help but feel inspired by the breathtaking scenery during the golden hour.

When the sun sets in the evening during this time of the year, I love the peaceful atmosphere because it makes me feel like I can sit back and enjoy the view, especially if I’m with a friend.

Those sunset hues inspire me to produce photos like this wherever I go, and I love golden hour photography because it fills me with a warmth I never knew I’d experience.

Photography is my passion, and I love expressing myself and my creativity through the photographs I produce.

It’s moments like this I reflect on the precious time we have, as nothing’s promised for tomorrow, and that’s why I love seizing every opportunity because every opportunity is too good not to miss.

This small world is a beautiful place full of natural form, and the scenery feels like a painting, a masterpiece of elegance that is irreplaceable.

I love nature because there’s beauty in the sunsets; the pinnacle of the evening is the overall landscape, and I love it!

If you love the golden hour, then you know I love this time of the day because of the euphoria that it brings, especially as sunsets, for me, feel like a release of endorphins that put me at ease, my mind and body at ease and allows me to feel liberated by the beauty of the sunset landscape.

I get goosebumps when the golden hour approaches and the sun sets, especially when there’s a beautiful breeze in the air, which is just right, and I can take a moment at the point of the golden hour to soak in the scenery in front and around me.

The scenery from this point fills me with warmth and comfort, and I hope this view of the sunset over Greenview fills you with warmth and comfort and puts you at ease.

Happy Easter, everyone! 😁💯🐣

  1. You’re very right Alex. The golden hour and sunset conveys such astounding natural beauty and feelings in the heart and mind. I’ve got to say this photo is amazing. The depth of hue and intensity/contrast between the street and the sky is definitely a powerful sight. Fabulous capture, you’ve fully reached expert photographer level.

    Thanks for sharing this post with me, I really appreciate it!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words on this photo, Vijay, I appreciate it, and it was a pleasure sharing this photo with you because I’ve been hard at work on producing more photography work as I strive to create photographs that are breathtaking and have infinite ways of expressing landscapes and the people I photograph.

      I have 8 photoshoots from last year that I’ve been playing catch up on which are in the pipeline which I cannot wait to share with you, and I’m excited for you to see the work I have in store!

      I knew when I produced this photo I wanted to capture the true beauty of the golden hour as I’m so fascinated by the beautiful sunset hues that the golden hour brings.
