As the sky was getting darker and the air was once again becoming hazy, just
when I thought I could pack my gears and leave, I discovered there was

avoided metering the brightest spot, instead I took readings on areas that
were very close to middle gray. I fired many shots and stopped when the
reflection has eventually vanished. All this took place within a couple of
When I processed the raw files, I was delighted to discover that the
upper portion of the fields were actually bluish and the green fields
which weren't quite prominent when I was composing the shot were a bonus;
combining with the red reflection, what I have captured was a synchronization of colors, light and patterns.
