Idyllic Dawn

This pastoral scene was the highlight of my lupine photography tour in June.   We woke well before dawn and headed to a previously scouted location with the hopes of witnessing a glorious sunrise.   Mother nature delivered!
The panoramic image is tone mapped for greater detail in the sky and the foreground lupines.   I intentionally included the barn and old truck on the left side of the image.   They add a touch of Yankee New England to the scene.  I wistfully wished that I could have found a better vantage of St. Matthews Chapel in the distance.   Only the top of the steeple was visible above the tree line.   This was one of the best sunrise scenes that I have viewed this year.   I was thrilled to share it with all of the tour participants who joined me!
