Blustery sunset

Wave after wave of storms moved through the upper Midwest this past weekend. I was able to find a window of time to make my way out to shoot that also coincided with sunset. This scene occurred after a day of thunderstorms. The wind was still very brisk and I purposely used a slow shutter speed to blur the foreground flowers. I also purposely tilted the composition to heighten the effect of being messed with by nature’s forces.

Taken at the Jelke’s Creek Bird Sanctuary in Sleepy Hollow, Illinois. It’s a great place to capture the best that God has to offer.
