Dawn on Dakota

Uploaded: June 01, 2007


This photo to me symbolizes North Dakota so well... I caught this photo at just the right time: the sunset was casting a beautiful red light over everything, which went perfect with the pink alfalfa in the foreground. Also, the moon and cloud bank in the background provided a superb sky for this photo.

This also has a magnificent point of view! You have a great eye! I think you should go back again (at harvest time) and try this again, shooting for a perfect exposure. It might take a number of outings to get the same lovely light, etc, but it would be quite worth it. #685099

Yes, I only wish that this same place was the same this year so that I could return and shoot more photos here. But unfortunately this area is not being hayed this year, and so I will search for a similar composition somewhere else. Thanks once again for your lovely comments and insight! #4473560
