Contrast in images can come from a lot of different things, far to many thing to actually list in this post, but to me this image just “screams” contrast. For me, that contrast in this image is the sky that caught on fire during a wintery sunset.
I captured this over the Christmas holiday while spending 10 days with family in Northern Idaho. It was really cold that day and we were enjoying some cocktails just as the sun was starting to set. I noticed the sky started to get a little hint of orange so I grabbed my camera, a coat and climbed up a nearby hill to get this scene.
I really wish that any image could have captured what this really looked like while I was standing there, the color in the sky reflecting in the field of snow was jaw dropping.
