Farmers around here grew a lot of sunflowers this year. And toward the end of the season, there were a lot of people standing the edges of the fields to get photos. I didn’t stop then, when the flowers were bright and full. But the day of the ice storm? Yes, that was the day I went out to see the sunflowers. The thick coat of ice made everything look blurry and out of focus, an effect I hadn’t quite anticipated but that I rather liked.
