My last picture of the sunflowers for today! Taken in Newbury, Massachusetts USA on 8/4/11.

232 views and 13 favs as of 8/25/11. :)

This picture is dedicated to my dear friend, Mike K, he has had some health issues and is now on the mend! He took me to this field last year and I was so hoping that we would be able to get out there again this year and we did it! I thought that this one came out really well, “looking up” and here’s to you, Mike! Things are looking up and stay well!!!! Thank you for your friendship!

Update My friend, Mike passed away this past January 2012.

Nikon D300, handheld, 200 ISO, 18-200 Sigma Lens, Photomatix and finished in Picnik (1 raw image), f/9
