Sunsets and Shooting Stars (photography on Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands)

This past week has been a crazy week.  A few bad things have happened, but a lot of good things have happened too.  It's funny how sometimes, you need to have badness happen to you, to then make a whole lot of goodness come your way. Just one of the many good things to happen was one of the most amazing sunsets I've seen in a long, long time.  The longer we stayed on the beach to watch it, the more incredible it got!  I know I've been putting way to many pictures of my little guy up, so I thought I would post some different pictures today.  Okay,okay, I did sneak in a few of Tharin.  I apologize......:-)

By the way, most of these photos were straight out of the camera.  No adjustments needed.  Yes, it really did look that pretty!

Then, later that evening I saw a shooting star!!  I haven't seen one in so long.  Sometimes I go out and actively look for them, but I never get too lucky.  They seem more special when you just happen to see them anyway.  This one was really, really bright and it lasted a long time, and yes, I made a wish..........

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
