Photo of the Week – Like a Sore Thumb

Three sunflowers in bloom stand out in a field of decaying sunflowers

It’s been a while since I have posted my photos of the week… but here’s my choice for this week. It’s called ‘ Like a sore thumb’ and is an image of a sunflower in bloom amongst a field of dying sunflowers.

It was taken in the Loire Valley, France, in early September. I was initially disappointed to see that the sunflowers were all dying, but I grew to love the contrast between the odd flower in bloom amongst the ordered rows of dying and decaying flowers. It provided a contrast of colour, texture and mood.

This image was taken with a Canon EOS 7D, using the 100-400mm Canon L Lens  at 400mm and f/8 and ISO 100 in the late afternoon sun.
