Hills on Fire

Yesterday's shot was manipulated to make the red stand out, but not this one - that brilliant orange is just as it appeared. I was driving down Route 22 on a cloudy late afternoon when a small gap opened up in the clouds and the setting sun lit up the farm fields. (Some of the most distant hills might be Sharon, but it's mostly Amenia, the town directly to the west, just over the New York State line.)

BRAVO, Superbe photo. Les couleurs sont magnifiques. On a l'impression de se repeter, mais c'est tellement vrai. Bonne Journee

CHEER, Superb photo. The colors are splendid. There is the impression to repeat oneself, but it is so true. Good Day

I often prefer the untouched photos. This one is spectacular and deserves to be framed! It is very lovely.

And the best part is, of course, that it is pure nature, no post-shot tamperings. It is all too easy for us digi-maniacs to enhance till we over-enhance, thereby missing what was really there.

PS- in case you were wondering, I suddenly got sick again Saturday. Bad secondary effect, which is what always worries me most. Still not right.

this is superb (as everyone has said). I just kept looking at the different colours and wished I was actually standing on the pation of that house.

Jenny - is that just the effect of the setting sun on the soil and trees? It's amazing. I stared at it for ages wondering if it was low growing gorse or something. I have never seen anything like this. Spectacular!

Sally, it's just brown trees and fields - nothing special growing there. It was the angle of the sun and perhaps also something in the atmosphere...I had pulled over to the side of a very busy highway to catch it so had to hurry!

Ths sun has a way of moving over a shot rather fast!
