With Hurricane Henri fast approaching the lower Hudson Valley, I had a strong hunch that something spectacular was going to occur. Instead of the skies thickening up with more clouds, there was literally; ” the calm before the storm” with a substantial break in the cloud deck.
So, I packed up my gear and headed out to a go-to place near by; the Scenic Black Dirt Region. One of the farms there grows sunflowers, and that was my destination to shoot them with the setting sun as a dramatic background.
As I was shooting, I felt this otherworldly presence behind me looking down upon me, so I turn around and saw a rainbow just beginning to form. I found this odd as there were no rain clouds, nor the smell of rain in the air. But, there was a high altitude disturbance that was aiding the rainbow’s formation.
I headed into the sunflower patch, and waited for the rainbow begin to take a more fully formed shape. Once that was accomplished, I began firing away, using the sunflowers as foreground material, and came away with this wonderful capture (among others)!
Once the rainbow vanished, I once again turned my attention to the setting sun with a very dramatic skyscape, and was not disappointed with those set of photos either.
I love when my hunches are validated!
I am honored to be able to offer my photography of the beautiful Hudson Valley in New York and beyond for all of your purchasing considerations. All of my photographs are available as prints, wall art, home decor, apparel, weekend bags and so much more!
