© 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott
As early summer storms start to roll through our area, they leave in their wake some of the most
interesting light of the year along with frequently beautiful sunsets. I’m a big fan of the “scalloped” look in the sky in these kinds of lighting conditions. I was at an event when someone mentioned the sunset outside was beautiful. I quickly said my goodbyes and disappeared. I found an open field where I could frame the beautiful sky and accent the foreground with a few daisies in a rich field of green. I actually shot bracketed exposures, but I found that I was able to get an image I was delighted with by just using a single frame where I recovered the shadows – a real strength of the Sony a7R3. The final result is a nicely balanced background and foreground. A welcome gift from passing storms! | #photodujour #dustinabbott #photography #sony #a7R3 #laowa #15mmF2 #zeroD
