What made me think standing in a the middle of a field for an hour on the hottest day of the year a good idea?  This shot, which is another HDR merged shot, to give both the sun-setting sky and the fields the correct exposure.  I didn’t think I was going to get the shot at first because when I left my air conditioned car, all of my camera gear fogged up!  After a lot of blowing and wiping I finally got the lens cleared and started shooting, luckily not too late.  I absolutely love all of the soft natural colors in the final merged image produced by the hot July sun.   Three separate images were combined in to make this one photo.
