Amateur Photographer Captures 'Angel With Wings' During Incredible Sunset

Amateur Photographer Captures 'Angel With Wings' During Incredible Sunset

An amateur photographer captured a breathtaking picture of the sunset in the shape of an angel on his smartphone.

Move over, Annie Leibovitz, because there's a new sheriff in town.

Stuart Murray, 56, perfectly timed the exquisite picture while watching the sunset near his home in the coastal town of Portsoy in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Around 9.45 pm, Murray snapped a few shots of the sun as it hit the water at just the right moment.

While he isn’t ‘religious’, he noted that the image looked like the silhouette of an angel with its 'wings’ spread across the water.

He also disclosed that he’d always wanted to get a photo of the sunset while on his beach stroll, but poor ‘weather conditions’ always got in the way.

Murray also said of his skills: “As for the effect the sun is giving off, I think, in my very limited use of my camera on my smartphone, it had something to do with the very clear and quiet still conditions that night.

“I remember whilst taking the photo a tourist couple walked by and I said to them that I wasn't much of a photographer and that's still true.”

I mean, everyone has to start somewhere? Right?

This isn’t the only sunset photo that has gone viral recently, however; one captured earlier this year proved to be popular for an entirely different reason.

In a photo posted to Reddit, a man was seen attempting to take a picture of a stunning burnt orange sunset.

However, many questioned whether he is facing the right way as it looks like he has his back turned to others viewing the sunset with only his silhouette visible. If left, the internet is extremely divided, to say the least.

One person wrote: “I showed it to my wife across the table, and seeing it upside-down breaks the illusion and I can only see it as facing away in that condition.”

Another concluded: “He's actually facing both ways at the same time.”

While another said: “Could still be facing away because iPhone screen might have just gone dark due to his battery saver set to 30 seconds and he zoned out looking at the sunset.”

We haven’t seen an image cause this much stir since the blue-white-gold dress.
