Loudoun County Sunset

This is a shot of the farm in Virginia where we spent a week with good friends a couple weeks ago. As the sky lit up after a storm, I reached for my camera and thought it might be fun to try some HDR. This is three shots with the Sigma 10-20, tonemapped using photomatix and a bit of touch up with CS5. The view from their back porch is really quite spectacular as you lookout over their woods to the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background. They gave up crowded freeways, smoggy skies and brown hills in California to move out here a few years ago. After selling their home in Yorba Linda, CA, they almost broke even on this 11 acre property. So....I'm thinking I need to move now.
