While on a shoot documenting land preservation, Michael Lloyd captured this image of the rolling hills of Paso Robles disappearing into the distance.
Last Febuary, "the landscapes were absolutely stunning," Lloyd said. "Wildflowers everywhere, greens, yellows, purples, everything was in bloom."
In between shooting timelapses of the rising sun, Lloyd noticed how the light was falling on the landscape. He grabbed his phone to take a picture.
"Honestly, this was one of the best weeks I have had shooting photographs and video because the landscapes were just so rich," he said. "The light stayed soft and everything just came together nicely.
