Sunflower at Dusk by palmbook Sunflower at Dusk by palmbook
Every December is the prime time for sunflower trips in Thailand. There are many farms that tourists typically go. But in my opinion, sunflower farm at Jeen Lae mountain, Lopburi is the best. Not only the farm is so enormous that you are surrounded by uncountable number of sunflowers, but the mountain behind also boosts the beauty of sunflowers.

It was my intention to snap a picture of sunflowers at night. Unknown to me, the light pollution in Lopburi is not much better than in Bangkok. So I had to pick the set at dusk instead.

This photo is actually a panorama. It was the first time I tried to use a macro rail to adjust the nodal point of my camera. It seems to work rather well :D

ขอบคุณมากครับ ผมเคยอยากได้ภาพทานตะวันตอนกลางคืนมานานแล้ว ภาพนี้เสียดายที่มลภาวะทางแสงมากไป ไม่งั้นผมคงได้ภาพตอนกลางคืนจริงๆ สมใจ :D

No worries. The picture may not be perfect, but still, sunflowers in the night is a great idea :-)
