I finally made it to Buttonwood Farm in Griswold CT when the sunflowers were actually in bloom (I've only lived 20 mins from there for 13 years or so!). They plant about 15 acres of sunflowers and sell them to raise money for Make A Wish. Always a great success, and lots of people around! And they make fantastic ice cream there too!

Hey, this looks familiar. I spent a few days here last week taking pictures.
I love this spot and photograph it through the seasons. Nice capture!

You are probably going to be hammered for over doing the colors, but hey, Van Gogh also over done it (according to his era standards), and won (ok, not during his life time) (not voting).

Looks a little oversaturated but it's a lovely scene, good perspective.
