“Back View Of Sunflower” by Carolyn Derstine

Today’s Photo of the Day features an often overlooked view of a sunflower, submitted to the Fresh Perspectives Assignment by Carolyn Derstine.

“Most flower photos are taken viewed from the front. However, I find the backs of flowers also quite interesting, and offer a whole different perspective of a flower. I spent a wonderful afternoon in a sunflower field, and this was one of many images I took that day,” says Derstine, who shot the photo with a Canon Rebel T1i and 180mm macro lens.

The current assignment open for submissions is the Motivation Assignment. This is a chance for you to share images expressing why you do what you do!

Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including AssignmentsYour Favorite Places and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage and several images from the Assignment Gallery are picked to be featured in The Best Of Assignments section in the print magazine. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
