I’m not a big hunter for sunset photos but sometimes I come across of one that sets it apart and romances the landscape in a special way. In August we had a few days when the smoke of wildfires in the western US made the sun more hazy and gave the sunsets a different mood. The photo shows how the last light of the day touches the hills and ridges here in the eastern part of Iowa along the Mississippi River. The white farm buildings and plastic covers of hey bales reflect the light and even some fog seems to creep into the valleys. To get the color the way it is I underexposed by 2 stops and set the white balance to cloudy. No reason to fiddle in Lightroom or Photoshop, just simple settings in the camera.
