So myself and a few people from the Loudoun Photo Club decided to get up at a hideous hour in the morning to go to Mckee-Besher WMA (Wildlife Management Area). However despite the early morning departure, we found what we were looking for around 6:45am, the field of sunflowers that were blooming.
The nice thing about the field, is that it was right off the parking area, so walking was minimal. The field is huge so even with the 30 or so photographers, there was still plenty of room without being on top of other photographers.
One of the lessons I learned from this trip...use my tripod more, be more patient, bring a step ladder and use bug spray...OFTEN lol.
