Humboldt Sunsets

Book By

Sunsets are cyclical events available to almost everyone on earth.  They are nature’s greatest spectacle. A daily reminder that we are part of this creation but powerless in the presence of such beauty and the energy it emits.  Sunsets are the connection between light and darkness, an explosion of light and color before night takes hold.  And we stand to attention each time an opportunity to watch it unfolds.

Matt’s images show how grand a familiar event can be as he captures the sunsets in Humboldt. The power of deep colors tells many stories as one flips through the pages; it feels larger than it is, almost as if you were looking at these images on a theater screen.

‘Humboldt Sunset’ displays 31 photographs; every sunset awakens your senses as if you were looking at page one for the first time; the depiction not only resembles paintings but carries so much energy that it seems to have a life of its own.

Image 7 depicts the early evening stealing daylight under a deep blue and reddish sky. 

Image 9 features a simple scene of ocean and sky, but the light on the water coming onto the shore makes my feet feel wet. Here is that connection between humans and nature coming to life again.

Looking at image 15, I see an abstract painting (moving) as my eyes follow the display of colors as darkness invades.

My personal favorite is number 11; picturing a goldish and blue sky being chased by heavy clouds and rain.  The depiction is dark; sky, weather, water and land all harmonic telling a story.

Matthew Busse’s ‘Humboldt Sunset’ is poetry on canvas.
