Skies Of Summer by kkart Skies Of Summer by kkart
Captured outside of Mead, Colorado...a beautiful summer sunset to say the least, I think we picked a pretty evening to photograph it over the sunflower fields. It was nice, we met a rancher who kind enough to let us on his ranch to shoot it all. It was quite the view...wow was it ever!

Stunning. this really is a view. And i just love how you've managed to balance the light so that the sunflowers reflect the tones in the sky. All so well exposed!

Holy canolies that's gorgeous.

Sunflowers are one of my favorite parts of summer... A shame they only last for so long.

Except of course, in the case of this picture! Beautifully captured :nod:

I was wondering if you shot this off of I-25 on 56. I used to live just down the road from this field and seeing this photo, I was pretty sure I recognized this place, brings back fond memories. Thank you. It really is a gorgeous sight.

yep, east of the highway and to the south, there were several fields over there, this one we shot on, the rancher was checking his mail and we stopped and asked if we could shoot them, and he let us on to his property. Didn't speak English hardly at all, but we managed

Fantastic. The field I remember was on the west side going towards Berthoud, where I lived for a time. I also lived in Estes Park and worked at The Stanley Hotel. Goodness, I miss the mountains.
I was looking at your gallery. We've left our treads in some of the same dirt. Beautiful work, my friend. It's been like running into a familiar face, in a far-off land. Thanks for that.
