POTD: Sunshine on a cloudy day

Sunflowers near Denver, Colorado

Every year, massive fields of sunflowers bloom near Denver International Airport. These flowers don’t last long, so you have to make do with whatever conditions you get. I was hoping to photograph the sunflowers at sunset, but instead we got gloomy, overcast skies. Fortunately, I had my Nikon SB-900 speedlight, which allowed me to add a little pop to the flowers while preserving the moody look in the sky. I used a fisheye lens to create the interesting curvature in the horizon.
