The last rays of sunlight reach out just before the Sun dips below an Oak Covered Hill in the California countryside.

Exquisite, Scott. Fabulous silhouettes.

Your settings were perfect to capture this beautiful sunburst ... !

Spectacular colour. Is a sunburst better with a higher f-stop? That might explain why I can't capture a good one (the highest my camera goes is f-8).

@Andrea: Yes, stopping the aperture down, (or shooting at a higher f-ratio number) will give you a better chance of a sunburst. I get the best diffraction patterns when only a portion of the Sun's disk is shining through the edge of a hill or through tree branches.
Wow stunning photo

After "working" with the sun a bit, I know it is really difficult to get it halfway decent. The piece you have here is WAY beyond that. The control of the sun's near glow, then the next phase going out and then the colors - all of this make up a truly beautiful and amazing piece. The trees are awesome in contrast. Bravo sir and happy 4th - I love this.

Simple effective composition, and you know me well enough that when I say simple that is a huge compliment as we all tend to clutter our frames with too much information. Distilling a composition down to its bare essentials makes it far stronger IMO and you accomplished that task with this image. Our oak tree-lined rolling hills are so beautiful. This image makes one stop and realize the beauty that surrounds this area we call home. Hope you are enjoying your holiday with your family.

I was going to comment on the beauty of the hills in California. Don said it. You guys are lucky to see this everyday.
4 Jul 2010 7:07pm
Scott, nice shot...Worth getting Don to stop the car for a few minutes !

Beautiful silhouette in golden bronze. I like the way there's one tree and just half of the next tree.
5 Jul 2010 2:10am
superb back light - love the strong silhouettes and the golden glow behind them!
5 Jul 2010 3:34am
Très réussi ces arbres qui se détachent en ombre sur ce ciel d'or. Superbe.
5 Jul 2010 6:47am

Marvellous. Great tones, strong silhouettes and a well-placed sunburst add up to make a simple but stunning shot.

Nice composition with great warm tones. The silhouettes are beautiful.
