Sunflower Promises




I love visiting our local Farmers' Market when I can. Along with the  fresh local produce stalls there is one wonderful flower grower who brings tubs of fresh flowers for all to admire and purchase. Thankfully I was allowed to photograph without buying, although one day I think I will bring some delightful inedibles home to enjoy for much longer!

hello gorgeous said...

sunflowers are pretty, but I never really looked close enough until "I heart macro"...seeing people posting sunflowers in macro mode showed how amazing they really are...I LOVE the "before" stage...a different aspect ;o)

Wow you certainly get a lot of comments on your posts! This is a great shot, funny how different the buds are than the actual flower. I took some phots of the buds too and they look so alien!
