An Autumn Sunset in Southern Indiana
This is a recently harvested grain field in Daviess County, in southern Indiana. The area is a community with many beautiful farms and wide open fields. After several cold, gray and rainy days, the rain suddenly stopped late in the evening. Then the sky exploded with color. The sun was already low in the horizon with it's light aiming upwards at the clouds, making the colors shine with brilliance. The show was over within minutes and darkness set in.
