At Day's End

Updated on 1/16/2010 --redid the border, slight local contrast adjustments


As the sun goes down over the front range mountains of Denver, Colorado, the Sunflowers turn, in anticipation of the sun coming back up in the morning. Photographed in a field where all you can see for miles and miles is Sunflowers....billions of Sunflowers. An entire sea of yellow and gold....caught in my lens for a fleeting instant, where the whole world was at peace....

A very eye catching shot. A stunning blue colour to the sky works well I think with the yellow of the sunflowers.

Sorry, I stole and made it my screen view for now but I ll try to get it in my dream tonight:))
Beautiful work!
