Enjoy Sunset on the Gold Coast

in goldenhourphotography •  last year 

At the Gold Coast, the sun rises over the Pacific Ocean and sets over a small mountain range and the farmlands and desert beyond.  On this rare afternoon, the dust in the air gave the sunset an amazing pink and golden hue and I just happened to be in the right place at the right time to catch it.  

I enjoy the symmetry of this photo - up and down, left and right.  
It helps me come back into balance.

...I guess it's a mandala effect.  By the end of the day, my energy can be somewhat off center and looking at something symmetrical adjusts my chi and helps me appreciate where I am at.

I love mandalas, especially naturally occurring ones like flowers and reflections.  They're a great inspiration for artwork!  

Have you got any photos of naturally occurring mandalas you would like to share?  If so, add them to the comments.

I took this photo today at the northern-most end of Ft. Stevens; it was a gorgeous day and I love the symmetry of this shot.



Oh yeah, it reminds me of an eye... I love how the waves are going right to left. Thanks for posting.
