Of Sunsets...Silhouettes...and Still Water
2 years ago|1,430 views |Photojournalism

Honshinji Wetlands in Cheongdo, South Korea, is quite famous within the country for its splendid sunsets. While working on a photojournal about South Korea I went there to see if I could capture some of its beauty. It was the month of February. The lotus plants so abundant there, having died during autumn, had only their wilted stalks remaining. On this particular afternoon there was only a scant few other photographers present. Nobody was saying a word and it was as quiet as the proverbial church mouse. At sunset there was no wind whatsoever and the surface of the water had not a single ripple. As a result the lotus stalks created a near-perfect mirror image on the surface of the water and made perfect natural silhouettes. I isolated a couple of them and shot his photo. The combination of the sunset’s golden glow, the silhouettes, and the still waters created an almost magical moment in time. It was one of the most peaceful moods I have ever experienced.

Thank you so much for taking the time to view, provide comments, critique, and promote my images. I sincerely appreciate it!!
