A Sea of Sunflowers

I was driving back from the dinosaur dig up near Canada, feeling awfully tired on the highway between Butte and Bozeman. The hour was around sunset and then I suddenly saw this enormous field of sunflowers... it was just sitting there... with no one taking photos of it... I thought it was a shame so pulled over and ran out into the field to get some shots before the sun dipped below the horizon.


These sunflowers were TALL. They must have been 6 feet off the ground. To get the shot, I extended the tripod, kept the legs together, put the camera on a 5 second timer, and hoisted it in the air again and again until I finally found the angle I wanted.


For you cool photo-nerds (like me), I kept the ISO at 320 and EV+2. The lens was at 14mm and the ap at 4.8. The exposure was .004 secs.
