Take pictures of Sunflowers! Second Visit

Burnside Farms in Haymarket VA has thousands of sunflowers.
Admission is $3 for a day-pass


Most of us wanted to this but weren't able to due to work, so I'm posting another chance for us to go on a weekend. I'll be keeping tabs on their main site in case the sunflowers start to go out of bloom and will keep everyone updated.  As I have never been there myself, I will say let's meet at the main parking lot, which is right by James Madison Highway.  Keep an eye out for a green mustang, that's mine.

    Anyone know of anyplace else that will have sunflowers this coming weekend? Are the fields at McKee Beshers past prime? I just heard about them this weekend and would love to head out, since I'll be up that way!

    I can't make it with you all Sunday so I went today. Didn't ask about the tripod Gary (sorry). The parking lot is really close to the field so bring it just in case. They opened up at 10:00 today but I think the weekend hours are 9:00AM - 6:00PM.

      It was pretty cool and I'm glad I went. I didn't do the season pass (for $1 more) cause its 2 hours away from me but if you all are near here it might be worth it for you. I posted some shots on my FB page if you want to take a look. Have a great trip you all and I can't wait to see your pictures.

      They don't open til 10 on Sundays. She does allow tripods. She does pumpkins in the fall. She brings them in and has a beautiful display. She used to be a floral arranger. It,'s like a showroom for pumpkins

    Do they allow tripods? And given their hours, is the sun too bright by then?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
