ABC Wednesday: S is for Sunflower & Today's Flower #171
It has been raining and miserable for the past two weeks in Taipei. On Monday, the weather finally clear up a little bit. I grabbed the chance and drove to Sinshe District of Taichung City in the central part of Taiwan to see the yearly flower show. The show has been famous for the mass planting of flowers in the field, from a distance, they look like multicolor carpet.
I headed straight to the sunflower field. For the sunflower, its head often bending downwards. From the first picture, you may think that the day was so brilliant bright. In reality, it was still a very over cast day as show by this HDR image.
Here is a more normal image that I did not shot the flower against the sky, but using other sunflowers in the field as background.
Or I can turn around with my back to the sun and use the blue sky and distance farm house as background.
I also always like to get closer to have detail image of the flower.
When I get really close, the image becomes almost like an abstraction.
We can shot the flower from the front, but do not forget the back.
The future sunflower seeds.
Finally a busy working bee covered itself with pollens.
