I find that I'm able to better appreciate the natural world around me when I start looking at it with a photographer's eye. Many times I've looked out the window of my house and watched gorgeous sunsets highlighted against the mountains. In an effort to better appreciate and to capture them, I've stared a new project that I'm calling The Sunset Project. For now, I'm stuck with weekend sunsets since the sun is setting too early for me to get away from work in time during the week, but the setting sun is gradually pushing back later as we move towards spring. And not all sunsets are worth photographing anyway - certainly not on rainy days! My goal is to capture as many gorgeous sunsets as I can in 2014. My main view is an open field about 1/2 mile from my house but occasionally I will switch things up a bit.
