The sunflowers are back at the farm. When I photographed them last year, I focused on the field as a whole. There were so many of them and I wanted to capture that sense of abundance.

This year I thought I would get closer (this is where I would love a macro lens) and pay attention to the little details: floppy yellow petals, prickly green leaves and unfurling bracts, and faces made up of hundreds of star-shaped stamens.

If you’re in the Ottawa area, you should stop by the Experimental Farm. I don’t know how long they will last, but there are two fields of sunflowers located on the corner of Baseline and Merivale.
