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!
