About This Photo
Outside of it’s reputation for the mountains in the west, Colorado’s eastern plains provide a different kind of beauty. Each year, summertime is brought to a close by the blooming fields of sunflowers in early August. Lasting around three weeks before they begin to die, the yellow fields travel on as far as the eye can see. The farmers move the fields move each year, so sometime’s they are difficult to find. The best area to begin a search is just south of Denver International Airport. An old wives tale says that sunflowers follow the sun east to west as it moves across the sky, but when the sun sets in the west, these sunflowers were still facing east allowing me to shoot into the setting sun.
