I started to follow a photographer (one of many) on Google+ called Colby Brown and he made a fantastic image of a field of sunflowers you can see here. I’d seen, unexpectedly, some sunflowers peaking out from a hedge on my way home from work, so I thought I’d give it a go. Now, Colby is a professional photographer so I was realistic enough to know that it was not going to be an easy task. Colby also had a small advantage in that in the US, where he is based, they grow acres of Sunflowers…in the UK (in Essex at least) you only get small, half hearted strips between fields so it rapidly became clear that getting anything similar was going to be out of the question, nevertheless, I’m still pleased with the results.
Here’s one taken with my 105mm macro lens.
