Wishing I was there, right now
By the way, no real idea, other than a guess, what that reddish area is.

A giant, man-eating tomato, waiting in ambush.
Looks cold, to me. I don't like cold.

I think it's sunset

I was thinking more like the Aliens have landed.

By the way, in giving credit where credit is due, this photographer, no matter how much Photoshop he/she used post-editing wise, did an outstanding
job of mastering the available light. Many, if not most, photo captions have little in the way of verbiage addressing technique, etc.,. There are
portable lighting systems (battery operated of course), but the best pixs 'fool' the viewer's eye that only ambient light was used (example: that
the little bird is quite recognizable is quite a feat).

I think it's a painting, not a photo.

Google is our friend:

Yes, you nailed it.
Some additional FYI: I went back and found the source of this image; and it's by an artist named Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Trautschold (1815-1877); so
it's a painting.
One other of his masterful works, along with this one, can be found at:
As noted, there are also other images of his work by doing the usual Google search with his name, and under the "images" is a series of thumbnails
with other of his paintings; looks like he was really taken with painting nature in an idealistic way.
On a "related" matter:
For those with killer tomato fantasies/very nasty dreams (you really should be seeing someone) re their replies to this topic, ye olde gray cells
recalled a movie from 1978 called-you guessed it, "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes". Even has its very own wiki--plot line synopsis, 'A group of
scientists band together to save the world from mutated killer tomatoes'.
