Sunflower Sunrise

I went to an area known locally as “Farmer’s Pond”, this morning.  In the winter, this entire area is flooded, and provides a lot of waterfowl habitat.  In the summer, they drain the water off, and the entire area becomes flooded with wild sunflowers.  One of the few places in the area that changes so drastically during the seasons, yet remains incredibly photogenic…

All in all, it was a really decent morning.  Thanks for taking the time to look!

  2. Really great shots! I’m a bit curious, did you use a graduated ND for the first shot, or was that all just the sunrise sky? Either way, I like that one a lot.

    • I used a 3stop soft GND on all 3 of the landscape shots, however, the gradation in the sky is due to the sun rising behind me. The GND was used only to tame the brightness of themountains, and allow for a better exposure on the foreground.
