Sunflower season is here again, and the blooms are big and bright along Poleline Road. Though my car is proving too unreliable to risk heading to the volatile County Fire (which I had rather wanted to shoot), I contented myself today shooting the sunflowers in Davis against a smoky sunset backdrop.
I decided to be a bit contrarian. When sunflowers bloom in Yolo county, locals and tourists flock for photos of them in the sun. So I took some shots of them under the light of the moon.
As every year in Yolo County, June/July is the season of blooming Sunflowers. Got a bit more on top of it this year than last in terms of getting shots while they're still fresh; hoping to get more soon.
This last Wednesday I popped over to the Yolo Bypass to get some more shots before the next storm systems moved in. I don't think I was the only one with this idea since its was busy with foot traffic and active wildlife; got some beautiful shots though. It's so peaceful when the water is still.
