The Colors Of A Late Evening by kkart The Colors Of A Late Evening by kkart
There are times when photographing that I get lucky and the light and the whole scene just comes together...lucky to be standing witnessing that most people either pay no attention to at all or are to busy inside their homes to notice. Such was this scene at the Sunflower fields here on Colorado. Photographed at sunset, there was some outflow going on from a storm over the mountains and as it flowed eastward it created what is known as "verga" (rain that dissipates before hitting the ground) setting up an incredible sunset with some crazy dynamic range. The dynamic range was so insane that I actually had to use my Sony a550s in camera HDR set to +2.5 combined with a 2 stop GND and CPL to get it all. I also decided to capture it using a panorama setting.

Yeah it was a productive year for Sunflowers! I hope you all enjoy it

When I first saw this photo (a long, long time ago), I thought there was no way it could be real. I remember wishing such a beautiful scene had actually existed. I think I favorited it in a hurry for lack of time to read your artist comment. Now that I am looking through my old favorites I find that it's 100% real and I can't stop smiling. You're truly a lucky man to have seen it all in person. Thank you for posting it where everyone else can see it as well.
