Huffman Prairie Sunset
Huffman Prairie Flying Field, Fairborn, Ohio
"This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls." - John Muir
This moment. The one where everything comes together in a grand show of color and composition. I was equally not ready for it as I was prepared. Being my first photographic visit to the prairie, I had spent my leisure all afternoon photographing birds and blooms around the area. This shot was an idea I always had but didn't have any specific location in mind to achieve it at.
This image became everything I had wished for in my vision for the potential photo. The foreground symphony of various wildflowers; namely various coneflowers and bergamot. Then there is the horizon treeline with a gorgeous falling sun and the Golden Hour lighting. A wonderful July evening hike throughout the historic prairie led me to the end of the path and day.The "Golden Hour" light was at its' peak after I set up my DSLR camera on a tripod and pointed a wide angle lens at the beautiful nature scene before my eyes and lens. Serendipity at its finest.
