Today I was standing in front of this field of snow-capped sunflowers wondering whether I could produce an image that conveyed the decay of the flowers, the jumble of their stalks, and the eerie atmosphere of a field of flowers that belong to summer shivering in the cold of winter. I made a lot of shots, naturally also with close-ups of single flowers, but I found the visual chaos of this specific shot fitting.

Shot with D300+35/2.0D @ f/8, 1/125 sec, ISO200, +1EV
In post I chose an amplification of the brown-reds and a yellowish tint for the snow which emphasized the drabness of the scene.
