|This is one of those "at the right place, at the right time" sort of photographic opportunities. I took this picture out at my parents house in a rural part eastern Colorado. The weather out there, as in most of Colorado, is always changing. This particular day, I watched the impending storm from the southeast roll in and it got very dark, and then, for about 4 minutes, the afternoon sun peeked out from the west and lit my fatherís sunflower patch just perfectly. It looked so beautiful- the contrast of these bright yellow flowers against the dark blue stormy sky.
Rotate, crop, burn petals, burn a few areas of leaves, hue/sat, levels, clone minor bits in BG to clean up, NI, add thin border, re-size, save for web.
