What a way to end the day.
Since I’ve been back to work it’s been harder and harder to fit in the time to make new images each day as I continue with this project. Initially I had thought I would end up using one of the photographs I had previously made over the past few weeks as the image for Day 28. Especially considering it was an all around rainy miserable day here in New Hampshire.
Then the skies began to clear.
First, it was just a sliver of blue sky that I could barely see through the trees to the west. With a storm passing I knew this could potentially lead to an amazing sunset. Which of course had me wishing I was anywhere but in my own backyard.
Somewhere in the mountains would have been perfect.
Of course I knew I couldn’t go anywhere. Even if I wasn’t staying home to be a good social distancer (is that even a word?), there was no way I’d have the time to make it anywhere more scenic, with a more open view towards the setting sun. So I did the best I could with what I had. Surprisingly I’m rather pleased with the way some of the images turned out. I say that because the sky was so spectacular that the entire time I was photographing from my back yard I was indeed wishing I was somewhere, anywhere else.
