Canine Pleasant Sunflower Fields close to Charlotte NC — BARKography


Anybody who is aware of me is aware of that I like photographing canine in flowers.

For those who comply with me on Instagram, you’ve seen my images from my journey to Oregon in April and the tulip competition on the market. Click on right here to learn a weblog publish I wrote in regards to the journey that features images. (and sure, I hope to return in 2022 as a result of canine + tulips are at all times a good suggestion!)

The fields are huge and the solar rises behind Mt Hood. It’s really magical.

We don’t have tulip fields round Charlotte however we do have sunflower fields that bloom in early July. The fields are positioned in upstate South Carolina about 50 minutes from my home. They’re in McConnells SC and so they’re operated by Draper Wildlife Administration.

They plant totally different fields annually so it’s at all times enjoyable to exit for the primary time and see what they’ve planted.

Final 12 months there was a area within the again that had a big tree in it that offered some nice shade and the sunflowers have been quick.

Brief sunflowers are key. Attempting to {photograph} a canine that’s 2 ft tall in sunflowers which are over 5 ft tall is difficult.

This 12 months there are a number of tremendous tall corn fields planted subsequent to the sunflower fields and many of the sunflower fields are actually tall. There are a couple of areas with some shorter sunflowers however until you’re photographing a tall canine like an ideal dane, taking pictures within the fields this 12 months is difficult.

You may see how Clarke, an Australian Shepherd compares to the corn area and the sunflower area on this photograph. Sadly I canceled a shoot I had scheduled with Hank, the basset hound as a result of I didn’t assume he’d be tall sufficient.

The fields are a few 10-15 minute hike from the car parking zone. Carrying one thing that’s robust sufficient to carry a canine and elevate him nearer to the blooms can be excellent however I’ve but to determine what that might be. Two years in the past I took a wagon however even with canine in it, they nonetheless weren’t tall sufficient. And never all canine would really like being perched on one thing.

Make sure to comply with my Instagram. I’m photographing two nice danes and two golden retrievers however these images received’t be edited by the point this publish goes dwell. I’ll you’ll want to publish them on Insta.

It is a weblog circle and our theme this week is blooms. As a canine and flower lover, you understand I’m excited to see these images.

Subsequent up is Linda Perdue of VPShoots Images with our canine among the many flowers. Make sure to click on the hyperlink on the backside of every publish and also you’ll see every photographer’s publish. I’m wondering if anybody else will present sunflower images. I hope so! Pleased studying everybody.
