Parrish Sky

DaGoddess @ 05:00

Taken last night at 18:40.

The color was fading from the sky very quickly. Every ten seconds that went by meant a little more color was gone. Finally, I hit the remote and let the camera go for 42 seconds. That little bit of light on the trees in the foreground? The remote’s little flickery light. Go figure.

Parrish Sky

I have always loved Maxfield Parrish and I really wanted to capture part of that color and lighting that makes his work so gorgeous. The moody, slightly lit clouds, the deep blue, it’s almost there. All that’s missing is the old farm or millhouse.


  1. Love the colours in that sky. Superb picture, very atmospheric as it is.
