Sunset in Franz Josef

Last night in Franz Josef. Another walk down to the river to capture the sunset. Sand flies were biting but the air was cool and fresh. The place has a really nice alpine feel to it. What really drew me to this composition is the red lichen that grows on the rocks that line the river. I wanted to get something to show how the red of the rocks blends with the blue of the water.

Image was processed in Aurora HDR Pro and Lightroom

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
