Sunflower Sea by kkart Sunflower Sea by kkart
The sunflowers seem to go on forever along the eastern plains of Colorado at dusk, just never ending as far as you can see. This field was massive in size, and it has, for all intents and purposes, been a very productive year for myself with photographing sunflowers. Several thousand shots taken, a lot of new friends made to shoot with, and new fields found to shoot. I am not even sure where to start processing all these shots as I have so many.

I hope you all like it

cool deal. I'm a photographer, I know nada about anime anything and I can't stand the stuff. How about commenting on the merits of my photo instead so the rest of us have a clue what you are talking about? No offense, but those of us in the photography community on here really don't care about anime.

It's a quite beautiful picture, with the contrast of the yellow/orange sun and flowers against the blue sky and violet clouds, but in order to express my feelings I felt I had to post a picture of happy russian who happens to adore sunflowers. Sorry about that.

Thank you :) No need to be sorry it's just that a lot of us in the over 30+ crowd really have no idea what Russia has to do with anything of a photo taken on the Colorado plains lol Get my drift ?

:) No offense to you at all but I think it's stuff like that which really drives many photographers away from DA. We are here for the photography and stuff like that, so when stuff gets said like that, we kind of say "wtf you talkin' 'bout willis!?" lol
