This is a scene from Ukraine. Sunflowers are an important crop here. In Ukraine people use sunflower oil the way Greeks and Italians use olive oil. It was captured with a canon 50D and a 17-85mm Canon zoom lens at 85mm focal length and 400 ISO f 5.6.

    I’ve seen this in Tsjechie… it was a wonderful view. Great capture, Yuri!

  • Thank you Thea. The sunflower appears to be an eastern European phenomenon.
