The Lonely Sunflower

By sherlob    

Time has been minimal for photography this week, but I managed a quick visit to the local lake a few nights ago. I have taken more images here than I care to remember, at times I find I am uninspired and don't even take the camera from the bag. At other times the location still surprises me. Finding this sole sunflower blossoming on the bank of the lake is an example of the latter. Whilst the image isn't my best, I hope it just about reaches muster. As my wife has just said over my shoulder "Its surprising where the sun shines".

Also it's surprising how they get to six feet tall in just a short summer season. I upladed one as well, but your location is an artist's delight! TG

But a very photogenic flower. I also like the sky reflections...

I have, inadvertently, found the solution, Adam.

One more lens means that there's no room for the camera in the bag, so I have to put it round my neck. This encourages more pictures...

My first thought was Little Weed goes on holiday. (You may be too young to remember...)
Our own local patch can be the hardest place to find inspiration, but it's also where we take photographs out of love and intimate knowledge. Not the big barn-storming show-stoppers. Quiet observations. That's something that I enjoy - on this site, Joline's recording of her lake through the seasons is a joy.
This is so unassuming, so gentle. Love it.

What a strange place to find a sunflower ...a seed dropped by a passing bird maybe ...lovely splash of colour ...Viv
