Although we have been having cloudy days with temperatures about 15C in the mornings, a sunflower like this one tells us that it is summertime here.

Raj - Sun-kissed beneath a lovely fair-weather sky - this sun flower is a beauty. The leaves in the lower portion of the image make a different, pleasing composition. Well done! Thad

I can smell the sunlight on your skin. Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make!

I posted today a sunflower as well. Your comment on mine was: "If I knew that you had posted a sunflower I would have kept mine back because I cannot compete with you Cornelius."
Can't agree with you Raj, simply because one can't compare apples with oranges. This is a wonderful post. Composition and colors are Top Notch. If you like to deny this, than I must say that you are too humble, my friend!!

Regards, Cornelius.

The two Captains both posted Sunflowers today and they are both fantastic. Good thing you guys are retired because you were on a collision course this day. Beautiful with the wonderful sky as the backdrop Raj. This is how Sunflowers were meant to be viewed.

Cameras are like people--sometimes they lose focus.
