Fields Of Gold by kkart Fields Of Gold by kkart
Captured last evening in rural Longmont, Colorado when *Glitch-Chaos *daskibum and myself were shooting. Anyone who knows me know I love Sunflowers, and every year I look forward to finding where the gigantic fields are, as they often change location yearly. Did I say gigantic field? I mean huge, as in Sunflowers as far as your eye can almost see. We shot this field for almost 3 hours last night, so you can expect MANY shots to come!

Pssst! Want to laugh? Check out this shot of Josh (*daskibum) from last night singing "I am to sexy for this sunflower field" in all his farmer tan glory! lol [link] hey you can't say we all don't have a fun when we are shooting!

Sony a550
Minolta 18-200 DT lens
Fotodiox CPL
Fotodiox GND 2 soft sided
Dynatran tripod and shutter release

I hope you all like it
John

(Sting)

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in the fields of gold

So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in the fields of gold

See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold
I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We'll walk in the fields of gold
We'll walk in the fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in the fields of gold
When we walked in the fields of gold
When we walked in the fields of gold

Another signature pic of your passion. Love it is a great pic. And could an awesome wallpaper since it soothes the mood. ^^
About the other pic. Thats what I called a Kodak moment gone wrong lol. Still at some point being there and being the odd component on the pic I can help too smile because he is showing how much fun he had doing this. ^^
Still I loved the pic because the amalgam of feelings and moods is amazing. The sunset and the colors, his tan, the sunflowers field every component although different makes a great harmony. LOL Sorry Im too hyper today. But still thanks for sharing John this so awesome. Hope you are feeling better. This type of pictures along other things makes me inspired and improve my day.

Nice shot John, your sunflowers are probably my favourites of yours, looks like a great part of the country for them what with those mountains too! I've only ever seen such a big field in person once, and I was about 8! One day I shall track one down with camera in hand...

Looking forward to the rest :)

i could never understand how people get shots of sunflowers from this angle, but then i realized these are shorter sunflowers, so viewing from above is easier.
I found a field a couple years ago and they were all over my head and impossible to shoot. Often thought of strapping a ladder to the car if i ever went sunflower shooting.
