Spring Sunsets: Bold and Dramatic

I still consider myself pretty new to the whole sunset photography thing. I struggle with finding what I think is going to be an interesting location and often end up wasting too much time driving around only to end up missing my chance or having to work with a landscape I don’t really love. The night I took these shots, the weather was crazy and I wasn’t entirely sure I was going to get much. It rained. It snow. And it produced some of the most epic colors I’ve ever seen. Bold, rich purples, pinks, blues, and oranges filled the sky. The dramatic clouds from the recent rain shower made for a great backdrop for a couple old corn cribs. Then, as I headed for home, the sky began to take on some intense orange and purple hues. Frantically looking for a place to pull over, I spotted some large puddles in the corner of a field from recent snowmelt and knew the reflection in the water would make for some really cool shots. This was a fun sunset to chase–might be one of my favorites thus far.
