Salado Sunflowers

We were just exploring some of the country roads around Salado, Texas.

I wasn't really looking for anything in particular, just curious about what the country was like off the Interstate.

I hadn't been back to my native Kansas in years, so a field of sunflowers caught my eye. I had to stop.

It was a bit of a scramble down through the ditch and up an overgrown bank choked with weeds. Once at the barbed wire fence, I still had to work the shot a bit to get clear of overhanging branches that obstructed the shot.

When the cloud swept over the yellow field, providing the contrast that makes the shot interesting, I knew the scramble had been worth it.
