We were near the end of a road trip, after driving through some heavy rains interspersed with dramatic bursts of light through the clouds.
As the sun began to set the sky was aflame with colour and drama. The intensity of the sunset was almost overwhelming and Steven stopped the car for me to dash out to the side of the road, dodging rain drops to try to find a decent foreground for some photographs. I took a few and then I looked behind, to the East. The pastoral scene, with the last of the autumn leaves at the bottom of a green stretch of grass and bounded by a field of ripened gold corn was a beautiful foreground to the more muted, but still beautiful reflection of the garish colours in the West.
I am in the mood for a more tasteful, gentle palette tonight and so am sharing the Eastern sky view. It also fits the #farmfriday theme, curated by myself, , and . Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
This was taken on the same evening which, not long before produced this scene: https://plus.google.com/105804664540125819976/posts/cn1PfKbaXnq .
