Our village is surrounded by vast fields. Every year there is a different crop - I think so far we have had corn (not very pretty), rye (pretty enough), barley (very pretty) and this year "our" farmers are growing sunflowers (beautiful!). I nearly fainted when I heard the news in spring. I had hoped for sunflowers for the past four years!
However, as it turns out, it is super hard to photograph the village *and* the sunflowers, especially since sunflowers follow the sun and when the light is pretty in the evening, they are looking in the wrong direction. Here´s proof:
Anyway I did manage to take a few decent shots even if I had to fight my way through half a field of sunflowers (very scratchy plants, by the way) and then hold the camera high above my head because those sunflowers are taller than me! Worth it.
And then I took a few home with me as a revenge (don´t tell the farmers). Also, should you ever plan to walk into a field of sunflowers, don´t under any circumstances wear sandals (ouch). You´re welcome.
