Description: “This was taken over the summer at a huge sunflower field in Newbury. Flowers are one of my favorite things to photograph because of their many patterns and textures. No two are alike.”

Camera info: Nikon D3000


“Sunflower blossoms in the foreground on the left appear larger. They are the prominent elements and start the steppingstone effect, leading the viewer into the field of sunflowers. A nice use of a wide-angle lens. The colors are amazing, and the softer light is flattering. The clouds in the sky help the photo.”
