Illuminated Lupin Flower

A lonely lupin flower shooting up from a field of green, illuminated from behind by the setting sun. I took this photo last night in the hills of Irvine, CA seconds before the sun dipped below the horizon. My camera was only about 10 inches away from the flower, zoomed out to a wide 16mm. This is an HDR merged from 6 exposures 2 stops apart.

You can buy this photo here, with many options including standard prints, canvas gallery wraps, gift cards, mugs, T-shirts and much more.
