Sunset

It was very colorful sunset. The photograph was taken somewhere on Davis Island where I was shooting an engagement session. I tried to make the colors exactly how I saw them.

Slideshows are in Flash now, and my second step after setting up the website and the blog would be to write one (or use a ready one if I can find one that suits me) in JavaScript – so that everybody including those using Mac could see them. And a beautiful picture, one that I made recently, is hidden behind “Continue reading” link…
