Big Sky Over Bluebonnets

Big Sky Over Bluebonnets

I was photographing this field of bluebonnets along Texas FM 50 between Brenham and Independence during the golden hour and was rather frustrated by the clouds that had formed at the horizon. As sunset progressed, however, I could see that the sky after sunset would light up the cirrus and cirrostratus clouds. More than a few people pulled off the road to photograph the field when they saw me before sunset, but I was the only one left when the sky lit up after sunset.
