Sunflowers at the Agricenter

I happened to drive past the Agricenter on Friday night and saw the sunflower field at Shelby Farms in full bloom. I love to stop there at this time of year, but my regular routes don’t take me that way anymore, and I’d forgotten about it. But I did a U-turn and drove back for a little quality time with the flowers!

The sun was setting and the lighting was wonderful. I even remembered to use the “sunset” setting on my camera.

Lots of people were having portraits taken in front of the sunflowers – there were fancy cameras and light reflectors everywhere! I’ll have to remember that (Jessica, you should come next year! You would LOVE it). For now, this was the best I could do.

    Wow, I think this is the most comments I’ve ever gotten here! :) Thanks all!

    Dana, I have a Canon PowerShot SD 1200. I love it!

  6. How pretty! Supposedly, they say that the Kingsport area is getting a corn maze this fall – though the place that they have the ad for it up, uh, has no corn. At all. If it actually happens, I might have to go sneak some pics.

    Beautiful! And I totally thought I responded to this entry already.. :/ Sorry.

    I’d love to take pictures there! I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a sunflower field, except maybe from the highway somewhere. How fun.. you could be my portrait subject. :) Thanks for the shout out!
