SUNFLOWER DAYS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Sunflower

These photographs were taken on different days, in different locations; the first in a wildlife garden with my macro lens and the second close to the water’s edge with my 70-200mm. The first shot required very little cropping, the second a bit more. Most everyone loves sunflowers, they just feel like summer but I find the macro shot has a slight edge to it, perhaps because of its starkness. Not just another pretty face.

  1. I like both and also some spiky flowers in the second photo.

  2. The pinkish flowers in the second photograph appear to be smartweed (Polygonum spp.). They do indeed grow near water.

  3. Such lovely photos! I like that you took the time to photograph such a common, but beautiful flower. Too many times I walk right by the beautiful flowers and plants to try to capture something more exciting. Thank you for reminding me that I need to remember to take some time to pay more attention to the flora that greets me every time I step outside:-)

  5. The yellow petals and the dark green leaf behind it (second picture) are such intense colours. Really striking.
