Stumbling on sunflowers
Finally was able to get out with a camera over the weekend. Not counting the week and half on vacation, it has probably been a month. I usually slow it down this time of the year because of the brutality of our summers but so far we’ve been catching a break and even that stuff they call rain has fallen a few times.
I came across a long patch of sunflowers much to my surprise. They were about 10 meters deep and lined the edge of soybean field stretching maybe a half-mile long. This then turned out to be an intermittent pattern for quite some time. It seems I was about a week or two past full-bloom so I definitely made a note on the calendar for next year. A few patches were still dense, but it would have been great to see them all full-on at the same time. Also unfortunate, I was without my wide-angle glass, currently in repair *sigh.* But, had to make some lemonade so I captured what I could with some isolation-style telephoto and a few with my 50mm f1.4. Other than a slight bump in white balance in post, these are pretty SOOC. Enjoy!
