Thanks folks. Due to the high prices for sunflower oil, the farm price for sunflowers was up so many farms near where I live planted hundreds of acres of the beauties. #8065476

What a nice way to start the day! This is so nicely framed, Stephen! Love the horizon line with just those few bigger trees there. And you can never go wrong with blue skies to compliment the yellow (and visa versa). Well done!! Congrats on all your recognition with this nicely shot, lovely landscape!! =) #8108221

John T. Peters 11/6/2009 8:45:45 PM

Makes me want to travel to Maryland to photograph the beautiful sunflowers. It must have been fairly low wind conditions as well or you shot at higher shutter speed. Always seems like a problem if the wind is blowing much. #8110342
