Gold Star Award

5-gold-starsI would like to congratulate Shannon’s Creative Work as the Gold Star Award winner for this week.

Shannon absolute is inspired and awed by sunsets and this photo of hers is absolutely gorgeous.  I admire how she has the boat slightly off center from the sun.  Your eye goes right to the boat and some you get the full impact of the entire scene.  From their your eye spreads out and see the water and the clouds.

  1. Thank you so much!! The story behind the photo is this – I was taking sunset photos and noticed some dolphins ahead jumping around. We tried to get the boat closer to the dolphins, but this other boat scared them away and then turned into the sunset, so I snapped it.
