God's Sunflower Sky by kkart God's Sunflower Sky by kkart
Sunflowers....quite a field I have to say, shot with my partners in crime *daskibum and *Glitch-Chaos outside of Longmont, Colorado...and sometimes things just all come together. Thankfully the slight breeze decided to calm for a second letting me take this almost 1 second exposure. Have to love the late evening thunderstorm in Colorado! If you look close, you will see the rain falling over the Rockies

Sony a550
Minolta 18-200 DT lens
Fotodiox CPL and Fotodiox 2GND soft
Tripod and remote shutter release

I hope you all like it
John

i must say, i did a double take. i saw the sky and thought it was just a beautiful picture of a sunset, like all the others out there. but then i looked again for a split second, and wow. the sunflowers. this is gonna sound cheesy (majorly) but this photo is kind of life-changing.

This is by far the most impressive sunflower photo I have seen in a long time. That sunset light on those storm clouds is to-die-for.
