Holding Hands

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 19 September 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

These pine branches resembling two subjects holding hands at sunset came about as the result of the following story:

This past Saturday evening, I made a rapid, last-minute decision to try and capture the sunset from a spot that I had been thinking of using for quite some time... The sky was going "crazy colorful" and, in a rush, I threw my camera bag and tripod into the car and raced over to the spot on the east shore of Lake Washington that you are seeing here.....This spot is in Kirkland, Washington on the shore of Lake Washington and looking west towards Seattle's northern neighborhoods. I managed to get there, park my car, grab my bag and rush walk over to the spot that was on the shore while I hurried past Saturday Evening revelers, street bands, models posing for wedding shots, old folks, young folks, people speaking in all kinds of languages....and I was smiling the entire time because it was a BEAUTIFUL sky that was treating all of us

So here is my first scene that I used that evening...it is actually my favorite scene from the night...So I hope you enjoy it...Cheers ;-)

"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
