The Orb - A Peaceful Interlude

An ordinary scene can sometimes provide unexpected beauty. And a change in perspective can be as simple as just looking through the viewfinder. One late afternoon, after a hurried day of running about on this errand and that, I passed a small church I’d gone by many times. The graveyard nearby never seemed particularly interesting to me before, but I felt up for a challenge. So I wandered around a bit, disturbing a cottontail or two and looking around for that one shot that would please me.

As it turned out the sun was slightly occulted by a stone orb and the lens flare created a glint effect that somehow complimented the scene. In the end, the shot looked dreamy and half-real, a reflection of the peaceful scene I found around me.
