It was a glorious summer day when I visited a sunflower farm so vast I could only see rows and rows of sunflowers deep into the horizon. Like soldiers standing at attention awaiting inspection, the sunflowers were all facing toward the east, presumably because this allows them to catch the first light of each day. Viewing this panorama made it seem as though each sunflower looked alike, and in many instances this was true. But after taking wide and long shots of this display, I yearned to capture unique images of individual sunflowers. Among the thousands of sunflowers that had blossomed to full expression, I found this one still awaiting nature's signal to open wide its petals.
