Sunrise Sunflower Shoot Draper Wildlife Mgmt Area

July 6, 2023 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 am


I know it’s an ugly hour to get up, but if we want to catch the predawn light it’s a must, and it will be well worth it. Please RSVP to me at marcymurphy007@gmail.com, so I know to look out for you. My number is 704 957-1784 if you need to call.

Once you turn into the gated area, you’ll head straight back to the parking area. We will meet in the parking area at 5:00am, and walk to the sunflower fields. If you happen to hit the snooze too many times, and get there later look for two signs once you park. One sign to the left of the parking area and one to the right. The right side has sunflowers, but is a much smaller area. Both fields are nice, and provide different image opportunities.

NOTE: Be sure to wear shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty.

What to bring:
bug spray
sunscreen…if you plan to stay for awhile

If people are up for it. I will find a place to gather after the shoot for coffee and/or breakfast. Stay tuned.

Information from the website:

This is not a park
There are no restrooms or facilities to use, so plan accordingly.
Pack It In- Pack It Out
Whatever you bring in with you needs to leave with you. Remember this is only open to the public as a courtesy. Having the fields open for spectators isn’t necessary, so it could be revoked if things become problematic.
Don’t Pick The Flowers
Only TAKE photos.
