Autumn Sunflower 2
This is another sunflower photo I took a while ago. (Click here to see Autumn Sunflower 1). These flowers are not on the farm; I came upon two entire fields of them while driving through the dense backwoods not far from our property. They were everywhere I looked, so different than anything I had ever seen, and the brilliantly colored trees that surrounded the fields made a wonderful backdrop. I found myself entranced, snapping pictures and oblivious to the spattering rain falling on me (and my camera). I ended up with 7 photos I really like, and am toying with the idea of a series of blank notecards. The bizarre, silent, and totally unexpected landscape had such a mysterious, almost eerie (but not at all depressing) feel to it, and I think it comes across in the photos--or maybe you just had to be there. What do you think?
