A field of sunflowers in full bloom near the end of the summer on the Front Range in Colorado. Prints available; please contact us for details.I made this photo a few years ago during a lovely summer afternoon in Colorado. The sun had just gone behind the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains northwest of Denver, so the clear sky overhead created a very soft, diffused light over the field of sunflowers. I made two exposures: one for the flowers, and one for the colorful clouds. I processed the raw files in Lightroom and then merged them together using Photomatix. A bit of final cleanup and retouching was done in Photoshop. Prints available and comments always appreciated!
