August means one thing...SUNFLOWERS!

Make no mistake about it, I have a complete love affair with Sunflowers and Sunsets, and every beginning of August I try to find where the fields are at, this year Longmont, Colorado seem to play host to the largest fields I have seen in quite some time now. Still, there are others that haven't even reached their blooming point yet, and are about a week out still, one of those fields is the field which I call an iconic location, where many photographers show up, often in droves, shooting. Thankfully we met the property owner earlier this week who said we can come back and actually on get on the property and shoot once they are in bloom. Something that will give us a unique vantage point compared to everyone else.

There is just something about standing, looking at these flowers for as far as the eye can see just about, with the Colorado Rockies playing a backdrop to these endless fields. Next up, around the corner, Fall will be here, and that is my other busiest time of the year, and I am dearly looking forward to it!

So I thought I would share a few shots with you all to show you all what I have been up to. If you must know, these were shot on my Sony a550 using a variety of lenses, tripod, filters, remote shutter, etc. Clicking on teh links will take you to the larger images on my website.  So who wants to come out and shoot these next year?
