Backlights by Fargo

I went to this area to capture images of a church when the sun went down only to find that was a fail as there were too many lights around the church. Behind me though was this barren tree and overhead cirrus clouds were moving westward. Using a 3 stop filter I captured a long exposure of the moving clouds and this tree. The lights from the church lit up the tree and the light of Fargo lit up the clouds. Win, Win This image is awesome on metal, however it is available as a print, gallery wrap or metal print.
