This particular year there were more fields of sunflowers than usual in the southeastern portion of Kansas due to the unusuallywet conditions. The farmers were unable to plant their usual fall crops in time to insure proper development by harvest time. Instead, many planted sunflowers which have a relatively short season. This was the day following the Vernal equinox, and therefore the sun was going to set nearly centered on any east-west roads. I positioned myself in the middle of the road and waited for the sunset. Due to the hazy atmosphere, and the quickly dimishing light, I had to make the exposure a little before the actual sunset.
