A Painters Sunset

Wild Sunflowers captured at dusk in Boulder County, Colorado. This scene was downright amazing and with the storms rolling in the smell of the rain falling, it was something to photograph. The name comes from what I think it represents and how it reminds me a lot of a painting done by French Impressionism painters. It really has that kind of look and feel to me, so I thought that name would represent it well.

HDR blended exposure of 4 shots, please check out more from this series/photoshoot below.
Hope ya all like it!

Gorgeous shot, I love it.

FYI Those flowers are actually called "Black Eyed Susans", they're not actually sunflowers... I just learned that recently and thought I'd pass it along :)

I realized what one of the main things I love about this is that the colors are organized in such a way that the heavier purples are in both the upper right and lower left and the lighter golds are in the upper left and lower right...it gives it a great flavor.
