Sunflowers


Sunflowers
Originally uploaded by upnorthme
The girls (My wife and daughters) flew to Geneva so I had to drive over to pick them up. I passed this field just before entering a tunnel and back tracked to find it. Time was not a major problem and I have seen, and admired, so many sunflower shots I had to have a go. The light was falling fast but with my flash and wireless triggers I set up a tripod and used my remote control to hold the light off camera to the left. Shame about the tree but now I have a sunflower shot of my very own!

Great shot. Not surprised you stopped. Reckon you can clone out the tree.

this has to be the best sunflower shot I have ever seen....apart from Van Gogh's that is!
