Love the Summer Sunsets

Conestogo River Flower Box Sunset

Since I started shooting HDR (high dynamic  range) I have become more aware of the morning and evening light. I’m now always on the lookout for that special combination of cloud and colour at sunrise and sunset. I have noticed that the sunsets have not been as colourful this winter as they were in the summer. I wonder why that is? Maybe something to do with the temperature or pollution levels?
What I like about this shot is how the foreground and the background are in focus. When you look at the bridge in the background your eye does not focus on the foreground flowers and when you look at the foreground flowers your eye does not focus on the background. Just as if you where there. I find it interesting how your brain does that with a 2D flat image.
