What a nice way to start the day! This is so nicely framed, Stephen! Love the horizon line with just those few bigger trees there.

Makes me want to travel to Maryland to photograph the beautiful sunflowers. It must have been fairly low wind conditions as well or you shot at higher shutter speed. Always seems like a problem if the wind is blowing much. #8110342
