Cheery, bright, and strong is the sunflower and nothing says ‘late summer’ more than these vibrant beauties. As the days get shorter and the nights cooler (48 F here last night), sunflowers have the perfect personalty to light up and add warmth to the final days of summer. And these lovelies did so with such confidence, towering several feet above me.
I shot this photo with my Canon dslr using my 35 mm 1.2 lens. It was midday and the sun was very bright. My settings were ISO 100, shutter speed at 3200 and my aperture at 1.2. I did my edit in lightroom where I cropped to a square, sharpened and applied a Rebel Sauce preset.
