Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth – A Blossomed California Sunset In April…

Today I came across the post of the weekly photo challenge at The Daily Post and also if this is the theme for last Wednesday April 19 and tomorrow would be a new theme,  I still want to participate to this one, with one of my latest photo and share the beauty of nature with you all.

From The Daily Post: The theme for this week is “Earth” celebrating the Earth Day and our planet. This week, share an image that means “earth” to you — whether it’s a panorama of a landscape that takes your breath away, a close-up revealing a detail in nature, or another scene that honors the outdoors, we welcome your takes on the theme!

The photo I am sharing today is a beautiful Southern California sunset filled with lovely yellow flowers. I took this photo some days ago during my daily evening hike. I love my walk at sunset time it give me the opportunity to take beautiful photos of sunsets and fierce colored skies. California is a wonderful place for sunset photography no matter where you are if on the hills or near the ocean. This photo was taken on the hills of a trail I love to go. The nature here is beautiful lately especially after all the rain we had a month ago, everything turned out beautifully green a joy for the eyes since here often the hills looks yellow brownish and dry.
I enjoyed my walk a lot lately with these beautiful kind of evenings, but this week is already getting too warm and everything is already changing color.

When I took this photo, I really wanted to capture all the elements that makes our earth beautiful, the orange fierce sunset sky, the clouds, the land and the flowers. I almost felt I was creating one of my paintings, I had a clear idea of how I wanted the photo to be. To get this angle for my shot I had to almost laying on the ground! Turned out exactly what I’ve envisioned! I hope that you enjoy this portrait of nature as symbol of our precious Earth as much as I do.

  1. Stunning photo to celebrate Mother Earth, Carolina. Just loved the sunset capture with the grass stems curving from blueness into a orange/yellow sky. ❤


      1. Oh, that’s lovely of you! I will for sure. Right now I am just so busy. And there is no secret about my life. My husband and I are about to get separated. The move is happening this week. I am good, don’t worry. Acutally, it was me who forced the separation! It is liberating and already brings back a lot of harmony. So, all is well. Just damn busy together with work… lol!

      2. I knew you could relate to it. We are not fighting that’s why we decided for the separation early enough as long as we can talk nicely and respectfully most of all for the kids. It doesn’t mean it is easy but it is the right thing to do and that’s why I can handle it very well! Thank you very much, Carolina 😘

      1. Yes Judy time is arrived I shipped yesterday so it can take from a week to over 10 days and rare times surprisingly less! So keep eyes on your mail box! Also sometimes the post office will leave you a note to pick up at the office if there are any taxes from UK to pay. Please let me know when you receive it! Thank you again with lots of hugs! 😉 ❤
