Sunflower [Sep. 22nd, 2017|11:31 am]
Tony Grist

Ah, Sun-flower, weary of time
Who countest the steps of the Sun,
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller's journey is done;

Where the youth pined away with desire
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow
Arise from their graves and aspire
Where my Sun-flower wishes to go

William Blake

I think they may be my favourites. They certainly are at the moment.

What a glorious photo, little pollinator included. The patterns in a sunflower centre fascinate me.

I think the way to photograph flowers is to get really close. It's something I learned from Georgia O'Keefe.

Indeed. We visited the Georgia O'Keefe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico last year and she had better macro vision in her paintings than a camera.

Wonderful shot. The sun, seen in a sunflower...

Thanks. You can't shoot the sun directly- or at least not without lenses and filters and all sorts- but you can shoot a sunflower- and they're very much the same thing.
