History of Valentine's Day
""The history of Valentine's Day is obscure, and further clouded by various fanciful legends. The holiday's roots are in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, a fertility celebration commemorated annually on February 15. Pope Gelasius I recast this pagan festival as a Christian feast day circa 496, declaring February 14 to be St. Valentine's Day.""

Twilight....

I'm touched & moved to witness the beauty of golden light at days end. For this image camera was mounted on a tripod due to slow shutter speed. By setting the white balance at 10,000 K I was able to achieve a rich warm golden glow. Final image was processed with Google Nik (free software) using HDR feature for a high dynamic range with final edits to curves, color and spotting in Photoshop Elements 13 on a trusted iMac.

Image Quality: Lossless Compressed RAW (14-bit)
