Beautiful Sunflower Fields at McKee-Beshers

    Every year the massive sunflower patch atย McKee Beshers in Maryland is a popular destination for photographers.

    Usually blooming in early July and lasting for about 2 weeks it’s quite the sight.

    With over 30 acres of sunflowers in 9 fields you’ll have plenty of photo ops.

    You’ll see many photographers withย ladders; allowing them to shoot high above the height of the sunflowers. With most sunflowers around 6 to 7 feetย you’ll want to get a higher angle on the sunflowers.

    Sunset over Abandoned Factory in Riverdale Maryland

    The building in the background used to be the Engineering and Research Corporation which built airplanes by in the 30’s. Now it’s just a condemned building which I drove past everyday going to high school. I remember one day I walked 4 miles home from school because I didn’t have a ride and walked by this building while the principal drove by and waved at me (Thanks Mr. McMahon! ).

    Tripod on groundIf I was a bit more adventurous I would have broke into this factory for some eerieย shots but the construction equipment outside ended up turning out great. I tried to capture the dirt chips on the bottom right as the subject but that photo didn’t end up to interesting but here’s a shot of my tripod trying to capture the dirt chips.

    I enjoy sharing tripod setups just because it’s interesting what positions it gets in while taking photos. If you think I should share them more or less let me know in the comments.

    Sunflowers in Potomac Maryland

    30 minutes of walking in the rain lead to this photo, I heard there was a sunflower patch inย McKee-Besher’s hunting land and didn’t realize the sunflowers were visible from the road. Spending some time walking around a corn field in the rain (and seeing a Tesla) I knew I was in the wrong spot, I headed right around the corner in my car and there it was.

    Tripod setup for sunflower shootI used my new Canon 16-35mm for this shot and had my tripod was planted in the muddy field. I just wish I got to the field a little bit earlier since the clouds got a bit crummy by the time I got here. There were surprisingly a few people there for being such a remote part of Maryland. It was also my first time having my Canon 6D in the rain, luckily I had my Canon backpack to transport the camera so it didn’t get too soaked.

    Abandoned House on Hill Top

    Abandoned house on hill HDR canvas printOn a snowy day I took a trip north to Elkridge Maryland to find something to shoot. Coming up short I Googled parks in the area and foundย Rockburn Branch Park to which my surprise had an amazing abandoned house. I took my first photo and knew this was going to turn out great after I snapped it. The cold colors and deathly sky gives such a creepy vibe to the photo. If you notice all of the windows are just wood panels with white and black paint to look like windows. A friend of mine even printed out a copy of this photo for my office which is massive and eery.
