Golden Montana Sunlight
I normally try to follow these rules but not on this occasion.
On this afternoon the position of the valley and the summer sun were such that I had to shoot with the sun in the upper corner of the lens to capture the golden moment. The light is literally captured in spots of gold coming across the photograph in a diagonal from the upper left to the lower right. Is that a flaw? Some would say "yes" but breaking the rules works for me here because the light just electrifies the summer grass and purple lupine flowers. I call this photograph "Land of Love".
