A Place For Dreams

For better viewing please go to my website Wildscapes you can purchase there high quality prints.

Strong winds pushed the afternoon raining clouds to let the sun shine for a moment. The strong orange sunset light over the land and under this impressive sky made me definitely think of a dreamy scene.

This is an entry for "The world is full of magic" photography contest.

Favourites and comments are appreciated, thank you =)

It's a kind of HDR called manual exposure blending.

This one actually made me squint my eyes as if I was looking at the real sun. Well done :)

Thank you. It's a manual exposure blending.
Wow, this is great.
i don't know which part of the picture to take a closer look first, it all looks so interesting.

Can I ask where this was taken?

Thank you. It was taken above the city of Thiers in France.

Not even in my dreams have I come across a place so beautiful owo Man would I love to live there!
To ride a horse through those plains would very much make my day! :heart: Beautiful shot! You're still one of the best photographers I've ever seen <3
And oh gosh that sky owo I just want to fly through that soft looking clouds!

Thank you for the compliments. What you say reminds me some scenes of the movie "the never ending story" from 1984. These kind of movies are very inspirational for me ;) If you don't know this movie, you should take a look at it =)
