Sunflowers at Grinter Farms, Part One


For the second year, I managed to get pictures of the sunflowers at Grinter Farms soon after they had opened up. These fields attract so much attention, with some people traveling from as far away as Chicago, that the police had to intervene on Labor Day and close down the access road because of the traffic. I got there on Friday before the bulk of the crowds. Even one of the local news stations ran a story about the photographers that these fields attract. I don't live close enough to return often for pictures of these fields at sunset or sunrise; otherwise, I might have spent more time there.
