Drove ~150 miles with some members of my camera club up into Kansas on Saturday July 27th. We met with a farmer I met last year
and he led us to his field of sunflowers and turned us loose for a couple of hours. It is really cool to be out in an 'Ocean of Sunflowers'.

I like it.

Did you use a ladder to get the 'height' ?

I know sunflowers grow tall...perhaps not as high as an elephant's Kansas corn is purported to grow....but still high. The photo looks as if it was taken from a high angle.

It's not easy to get a good photo of sunflowers...I know I've tried. I do like this one though.

I would suggest you crop it ...just a bit at the top of the picture.

Yes, I am standing on an 8ft. step ladder. We had caravan of about 12 cars (drove from Tulsa, Ok. ~150 miles) and our farmer brought 2 ladders for us to use in his field.
We left at 7am to try to be there by 9am, shoot for a couple hours, then go eat lunch to avoid the heat of the day but it turned out to be a high of only 88 on that Saturday
