Sunflowers at Sunset

26/08/2021
These sunflowers lend a Mediterranean flavour to the landscape of Salisbury Plain. I selected a position at the edge of the field such that a small copse of trees on the horizon would be balanced by the setting sun. Composing carefully, with my tripod fully extended, enabled me to include both these and a dense area of flowers in the foreground. I focused on the flower at bottom right, which gave me depth of field from the nearest flower to infinity. Five bracketed shots at two stop intervals combined in Lightroom captured the whole dynamic range of the scene, from sun to sunflowers.
