“With My Back to the Sunset, I Saw the Light”

It’s still winter. And it’s still windy. But sometimes, when the wind rages all day long, our sunsets look like paintings from the heavens above. This particular evening, I turned my back to the sunset and saw the light had turned the dry, yellow meadow grass to red and gold and the sky was royal blue. The air was still so I took a seat and breathed it in. We cherish those moments of calm after an anxiety-ridden wind storm.
I shot this with my Canon nifty 50mm f/1.4 on the Canon 70D. I just got this lens back from the “spa”. It has been unusable for several months and I forgot how much I enjoy shooting with a fixed lens. I love the selective focus on the blades of grass. And I did zero color correcting in post processing. The 70D with the 50mm is a rockin’ setup!
Happy shooting my friends!
