Of Showers And Sunshine

Explore #211 June 24th 2012.

 

Went out this afternoon to capture some shots of poppies now present in many of the local fields. The weather proved very interesting with sunshine and heavy showers.

 

This image is a combination of two exposures, one exposed for the foreground and one exposed for the sky. The two images where combined manually in Photoshop Elements 9 using layers and masks before boosting contrast slightly then resizing and a slight sharpening.

 

Here is an aerial view of this images location using Flashearth. The link will open in a new window or tab.
