One of my favorite things to do EVER is take sunset and night photos! I find it amazing how light can surprise you after it’s traveled through the lens of a long exposure photo. You never quite know what you will get until you look at the image 30 or so seconds later. It’s truly something that brings me so much joy!
Last summer, I insisted that we go out and capture Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk after the sunlight hours and see what gorgeous scenes we could capture. Here are some of the amazing sights we saw!
I love night photography because it is unpredictable and gives me a way – even if it’s feeble attempt – to capture the gorgeous creation of the true Creator! Sunset and twilight are the absolute best times to go out and be inspired. Even if it’s just to walk around outside and get somewhere open so you can see the sky, it is so wonderful! It helps draw me out of my little world and remember there is so much more!
I hope these photos might help inspire you too and keep you on the daily hunt for life’s hidden joys…
