When Spring comes, many Bulgarian fields are covered with the beautiful blossoming rapeseed. I had an idea of what I wanted to capture already planted in my head and that Spring day I went looking for it. It seemed that I was late because most of the rapeseed fields had faded to green. At the end of the day when frustration took over and I was driving back home, I saw it, a couple of hundred meters from the road. It was the perfect spot. The tree was exactly as I imagined it. I chose a centered composition to emphasize the symmetry of the tree. To keep the sky dark enough, I used a 3-stop hard edge GND filter. I was waiting for the right light after sunset when Venus emerged from the darkening sky to complement my image.
