View on black to see the shadow detail properly!

I was privy to this jaw-dropping display of light in Eastern Washington. I found this beautiful, lush patch of lupine. Pictured in the distance to the left are the rolling hills of the Palouse.

The day leading up to this was overcast and warm. There was a chance for thunderstorms, but they never developed There was a small crack under the horizon and all the dull gray. So there was hope. And sure enough, nature put on a beautiful show.

This scene was extremely difficult to photograph and process. The lupine were being thrashed around in nearly 25mph winds. To get as much in focus as I could, I focus stacked and used the sharper images. This was surely one of the more challenging focus blends I've done.

Isn't this an old photo? I remember seeing a similar photo on your facebook quite a while ago.

And as always, this is one amazing landscape.
