The Flax

First off, Happy Independence Day America!  

Secondly, the flax are in full bloom again.

This time there’s a field within walking distance from my house. This dam is on my property and the neighboring flax field is beyond it. 

Last year I shot some closer images of the field.(You can see last years flax here and here.)
I wanted to try something different this year since I had the dam to work with, instead of what I did last year.

The previous year, I also had some incredible blue skies to work with. This year it’s a bit hazy, possibly due to the fires in Canada.

Since the flowers only bloom late morning during the harsh sun, I used my neutral density filter and several stops down to get some longer exposures. It’s a little breezy today and I love the softness the clover creates due to the longer exposure.

    Color only God can create. Good job capturing it.
