August Dusk by kkart August Dusk by kkart
I decided to hit up the sunflowers at sunset last night again. I picked a different than the previous night which is pretty easy to considering the field is probably 6 miles by 6 miles in size. It was more challenging however as there was a breeze and they kept blowing around a lot so I had to really mess with my exposure to bring up the shutter speed some which I hate to do when photographing sunflowers. The scene though did play out well in the end and I was given a great sunset sky setting over the front rage of the Colorado Rockies. Can't complain about that! The next couple of weeks should be exciting as myself and my fellow photography friends will be working the landscape out here a great deal. Stay tuned!

We went to Colorado last year (we have a cabin in Leadville) and passed by a ton of sunflower fields on the way back home - so pretty.  Great shot!  Is there a way could use this in some fan art for Michael Jackson (he loved sunflowers)  I would give you proper credit and it would not be for sale anywhere.  Thanks!

I like this one better than the first shot. It seems as if the sunflowers are more animated here; almost as if they're watching you. Nicely done.
