Paradise Is.... by kkart Paradise Is.... by kkart
Paradise Is....

"Paradise Is...." Sunflowers, Sunsets, Mountains, and Colorado!

Photographed on the eastern plains of Colorado, during a display of what I can only call 'Heavenly'.

I sure hope this Sunflower field returns this year, and praying hard at that too! It has provided me with some of the most amazing photographs I have ever shot....and unobstructed views of the whole front range are almost a rarity these days.

You can see the entire series so far that I have posted (yes I have MANY more yet to come) in my collection called
The Sunflower Series

This photo is so visually stunning, with the lighting creating an unusual orange colour on the sunflowers which contrasts well with the green. Although the horizon line is very high up in the frame, one can still see so much - the mountain range and the sky.
Everybody has seen a sunflower field picture before, but this is so impressive because it is so much better than any I have seen before. It seems that you chose the perfect time of day to capture this photo; when the heads were facing away from the mountains, and the sky and light were attractive.
Very well done, I hope to see more like this!

Paula I just saw your message here, that is pretty odd actually....I didn't have an EL on that image, and will have to look in to this more, have you seen the book personally? I have to figure out a way to contact the publisher asap
