Revelation of a farewell

Revelation of a farewell
We had some nice clouds formed overhead, so I headed to nearby Mt. Hamilton for sunset. This mountain is behind San Jose, the capital of the Silicon Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area. The sun was hiding behind clouds, and for a brief moment we saw a nice formation of rays hitting the bay. It was like a farewell from heaven, from someone dear to my heart.

I processed a paintery, a balanced and a photographic HDR photo from three RAW exposures, merged them selectively, and carefully adjusted the color balance and curves. I welcome and appreciate constructive comments.

    they call them angel rays in ireland. i am hoping you are waxing philosophical, getting poetic in your dotage…but you rarely say things frivolously, so i am very sorry for your loss. i do believe the cosmos hears you and gives you what you need. gorgeous message!
