Under A Peach Sky by kkart Under A Peach Sky by kkart
Sunsets, Thunderstorms, and Sunflowers….can it possibly get any better than this? Captured outside of rural Longmont, Colorado…I was fortunate enough to pick a day to shoot when the elements decided to all come together one summer evening a week or so ago. It was something seeing the sky change so fast and watching the thunderstorms roll over over the Colorado Rockies. For me, as a photographer, I live for being able to capture scenes like this!

I hope you all like it!
