I finally found a stand of sunflowers to photograph on a ridge near La Farge. But what about the fact that sunflowers face the sun, thus are facing the west in the evening, which with the Milky Way in the southwest in the fall, is exactly the wrong direction… what to do? I twisted the plants stem 180 degrees and applied an A-clamp to hold it in place. The shadow around the sunflower’s stem is because there was a slight wind rocking the plant back and forth. The Milky Way tilting to the right is because the camera was orientated for the main sunflower, which was falling to the left.
