Since it is Saturday Morning I thought that this one was applicable!

I was driving down the road and saw that beautiful orange sky - I decided to pull over and frame the sun using the tall grass that was growing on the side of the road. (This is full frame and not cropped).

frank w. degenhardt July 03, 2011

The colors and glow are just beautiful and I was just about to compliment you on the way you cropped it and the position of the sun and how it comes in from the edge. To know this is done without doing the cropping and to get this look is amazing. I so love the way you brought the grass into the picture and how it fills the frame with so much beauty. Stunning work my friend.
Have yourself a most fantastic day. #9504112
