Explore with Me 002 | Sunset Silhouettes

Hello, dears!

It feels like I haven’t done a sunset post in AGES! Remember when I used to do them all the time? I should get back into photographing them more because ahhh! Sunsets! Enough said.

Before we start, a note: I made this series to motivate myself (and you!) to get outside even on days when it seems so much more productive and useful to stay in front of the computer. I don’t know about you, but can only stare at a screen for so long before my brain starts getting frizzy. :’D So!
