I am very fond of the work of the great painter Rene Magritte, and his "L'Empire des Lumieres" inspired me to take and name this picture, where you have a dark, stormy sky on the one hand, and a very brightly lit field below, in stark contrast. Of course the fact that it was very late in the afternoon and the setting sun was very low on the horizon is what made this (unretouched and unprocessed) pic possible, with those bright, wonderful hues.
