There is something about sunflowers that I absolutely love. It is hard to look at a sunflower and not feel happy. A number of years ago I went on a sunflower photo outing with one of my favorite photographers, Rick Gerrity. It was amazing. and I was hooked. In fact, I have been back to photograph the sunflowers and to do some portrait sessions every year.
If you have never visited a sunflower field, you don't know what you are missing. Typically, in New Jersey August is when sunflowers are in bloom. This year they bloomed late. I took these pictures during the second week of September.
