This grassy clearing is absolutely flooded with sunlight. A lone crow alights on the end of an outstretched branch, surveying the calm scene around it.

On the right, the white sunlight bursts through the branches of the trees, obliterating details with its brightness. The landscape is like a rainbow prism. Under the hot sun, the trees and grasses shine in tones of blue, purple, pink, orange and gold.

Parts of the ground shine so brightly in the sun that they are a blinding white. You can feel the soothing warmth of the sun-soaked clearing.
