Summer sun [explored]

Beautiful photo of summer taken in the Greek countryside. The contrasting sky, the dry yellow field and green mountains give this landscape picture the distinct sense of the Mediterranean summer time.
Notice the way the sky is lit, there are no major overexposed bits. This light is diffuse and the sun enhances the clouds. Very good post production work.

  1. Love this. Where I live in CA is very Mediterranean-like. We have the same latitude, and everything gets dry and yellow in the summer. What lovely clouds.
