The Glow of A Sunflower Sunset by kkart The Glow of A Sunflower Sunset by kkart
The Glow of A Sunflower Sunset

Sunflowers bring the glow of the setting sun against the front range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Photographed in rural Boulder county.

I hope you all have your sunglasses on. I really aimed to capture the sense of drama and emotion, along with the feeling itself, of what it was like to stand here and see this. I hope I achieved that.

John

This is just a really absolutely stunning shot, and I'm a sucker for that tangerine summer glow, that only seems to come just before the night and early morning. :)

It reminds me of being on the road, and just driving until the only thing you can see are fields, and mountains, and of course, the wonderful light of a low burning orange sun, which, for a girl from a small town surrounded almost completely by cities, that's an amazing thing.

So, I find this simply brilliant, especially because of the sunflowers. It seems to me like they're standing up just a little straighter, trying to glimpse that light, one last time before it fades.

wow! look at that glow. now i feel like i went camping and woke up to a really great sunrise. love the orange tone from the sun and the way it reflects on the sunflowers. it's a beauty. i just like how they all (the sunflowers) look like they turned their heads around towards the sun to cheer and welcome it for coming back.
gotta love summer!!
