Sunflowers

Posted by
PShorten (West Chester, United States) on 17 September 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

From the article in the Daily Local News, "Take a drive down in Longwood Road, make the turn at Schoolhouse Road, and as the crest of the hill approaches, look to the left and behold a lovely sight.

In the adjacent field are some 463,300 "nunsun" sunflowers just days away from their blooming peak."

Thank you DLN, what a site and experience!

Nice, Pat. Looks more like a pencil drawing than a photo. Interesting processing.

I'm with Jim. The "edginess" of this makes it a notch above and is what makes this work so well as a b&w image IMO. Nice.

This is really beautiful and powerful. It's as if all the other sunflowers have given up...all except one. it's almost as if the others sunflowers are holding their heads down in shame.
