For just a few moments, the setting sun dips beneath the clouds to illuminate a path in the Garden of the Gods while Pikes Peak looks on.
Details: As I’ve said with other photos, I love to point the camera directly at the sun. In this instance, I only had a couple of minutes to work with as a clearing storm revealed the sun just before it dipped below the mountains. I love the way the rays from the sun and the shadow of the fence play in this composition which was taken from the central gardens area of the Garden of the Gods near Colorado Springs, Colorado. Capturing this image in HDR ensured both the highlight and shadow detail could be maintained.
