A Field of Sunshine

    Newer Older

    One of my New Years Resolutions was to carry a camera with me all the time. Today I went to visit my sister and just happened to pass a market garden that had rows and rows of sunflowers. The gentleman who owned the property was at his mail box so I asked him if he wouldnt mind if I took some pictures. He told me to come onto the property so that I could get closer. The dark background is a grove of trees.
    The only thing I regret is that the sun was still pretty harsh. It would have been better to take this early evening but time did not permit
