Sunflower Field by Rachel Stickney

The sun was shining and the bees were buzzing on a warm September morning at this delightful sunflower field just down the road from my house in Ohio. I’d been meaning to shoot these sunflowers for several years, but always seemed to miss the peak bloom. I made a point of getting there one sunny morning and spent about an hour shooting various angles and compositions. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was quite a busy spot that day. As you can tell from my portfolio, flowers are one of my favorite subjects to shoot. This image is one of my personal favorites.

    I was in Italy this summer, in the region called Le Marche. Sunflower fields were everywhere, albeit that most of the flowers were past their best. We did however come across one field where the blooms were still in flower. A bit like this field. How very interesting that your photo was taken in September. In Le Marche June is the ideal time for sunflowers to flower. Lucky you having this field so close to home.

  • It’s not a huge field but looks beautiful every September. It’s on the property of a small garden center/farmer’s market and I drive by it all the time on my way home, so I know when it’s ready to shoot. :)
