Sunflowers At Sunset
Photo By Tom Haxby

  • Title: Sunflowers At Sunset
  • State/Province/Region: Michigan
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Turtle Creek Casino along Highway 72
  • Nearest Town: Traverse City
  • Brief Directions: Along Highway 72 just east of Traverse City behind the Turtle Creek Casino. This field is only planted to sunflowers in some years.
  • Notes: Contrary to popular belief sunflowers do not follow the sun. This was taken pointed toward the west, but the sunflowers are pointed east.
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: I had been watching this field of sunflowers for a couple of weeks. The light was just about right and the flowers were near their peak. I used a graduated neutral density filter to hold back some of the light in the sky. It still required some Photoshop work to lighten the shadows and to darken the clouds.
  • Gear: Nikon D2X, 17-55 mm f2.8, graduated neutral density filer, gitzo tripod
