Clouds and lens flare

Two days ago, Midsummer eve, we had some sunshine in southern Finland (it has been quite cold and rainy during the last days). This is a combination of  two sets of three image HDR images (-2,0,+2) of the clouds – and lens flare.

Colors are over-saturated. The rays of the sun are unrealistic (due to small aperture f/22). The contrast in the clouds are exaggerated. The clouds in the lower part of the image are not aligned corretly

But that was the feeling.

  1. Beautiful image – I love the lighting and contrast. Nice HDR work without going to far in the post processing.

    Yet the trees seem to be aligned OK. Is it a plantation? What sort of trees are they and what will they be used for? I’m pleased you are at last getting some summer weather! Is the crop in the field mustard? I recall seeing vast fields of yellow mustard flowers grown for seed in Sweden a few years ago. The photograph reminds me of enhanced images of space…galaxies and so on. A little frightening, as I guess it is, the clouds/weather having such power of life and death for all life.
