turning against the sun

sunflowers, originally uploaded by Vilseskogen.

An unusual but gorgeous sight on the fields around here - a yellow sunflower extravagancy near Amwell Road in New Jersey. I really thought sunflowers turn with the sun, but these large ones don't. Maybe that is only true for the smaller flowers.

Hi! I really like your photo and all of your work. I'm really familiar with Amwell rd. Can you tell me where about's was this sunflower field? I've been looking for one to shoot and this one looks great!

HI Christy,

I can't remember the exact name of the road, but it goes between Wertswille and Amwell Roads, and it is southwest of Neshanic. Probably not too far from Lindberg Road but on the other side of Wertswille Road. It is on a curvy road which has a small bridge over a stream. Good luck finding it.
