Two of my favorite things to photograph are usually plentiful in August. That would be Rainbows and Sunflowers of course. This week I made my way down to Elverson to check on the Sunflower field located next to the Please Wash Me Carwash.

I was surprised to find them in full bloom, I guess I’ve lost track of summer. I was not surprised to see the parking lot nearly full, and reach double it’s capacity in the half hour or so that I was there. Keep in mind this was 10am on a Tuesday, so … expect a crowd. I still love this place and think it’s worth it. I’ve also found it to be slow in the early morning.

While I was there I took the drone up to have a look around. There were a ton of people there taking portraits, so I enjoy capturing a different perspective. Checkout the video below …

That’s all I’ve got for now. If I find any other Sunflower fields this season I’ll be sure to let you know! If you have Sunflower pics you’d like to show off drop them in the comments, tag yur shots with #GrandLancaster, or join the Grand Lancaster Society Facebook Group.
