The Sunflower Field

July 19, 2019

Have you ever been to a Sunflower field? I think Sunflower fields are so dreamy! They are great Photo Ops! If you want a great Insta picture and have a sunflower field near you. Go get some cool insta-worthy pics 😉

Living in North Carolina, I have experienced so many firsts, visiting a Sunflower field was one of them. I always wanted to go to a sunflower field in India but there was none closer to where I lived. Last year I went to the Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina and was awestruck! So this year of course wanted to go check It out again!

I was the photographer last year, hence I didn’t get my pics clicked, except for maybe a selfie. This year I wanted to get a nice shot even though it was total madness in this scorching heat, but hey what the hell #doitforthegram lol  – not really but whatever, It does go on Instagram too 😉 I love looking at the pics and reminiscing those moments!

The sunflower field in Raleigh is in full bloom right now. The city harvests the sunflowers every year to create thousands of gallons of biodiesel, which is then processed into fuel to run tractors, trailers and farm equipment. The field of tall, golden flowers is expected to be in peak bloom until July 26, and then possibly still in view-able condition for another week or so depending on weather.

I had the opportunity to go visit the field on July 16th, 2019. If you are in the area, make sure to go check this beautiful field out. There were a lot of photographers doing mini sessions, I think it’s a great place to get your family pics done! We din’t do any as our toddler did not co-operate but I made sure I got my picture clicked 😉

That being said, If you do go to the field make sure you have towels to wipe sweat off your face, it was humid and extremely difficult to stay there for long. Best time to go would be evening. It will still be hot but much better.

Sharing some of my clicks from my trip to the sunflower fields!
