This is the whitest sundown I’ve ever seen 🙂 but it works quite well as a background that allows the yellow and greens to have the stage all to themselves. Glad to see you devoting your masterful eye to the horticultural world.

Thank you, Alan. . . .Yeah, I think I jumped the gun a bit by calling it “sundown.” It was late in the day, and the sun was coming in at a nice low angle. I don’t know what to call that time of day. It wasn’t “dusk” either.

Funny comment after the white skies discussion! I love the twists of those petals.

They are neat, aren’t they. . . . Well, no, they are not neat. They look rather messy! 🙂

Some flowers look good even when they are past their best – and Sunflowers are a good example. I like those twisted, curled petals and the complete ‘hang-dog’ expression of the drooping flower.

Thanks, Andy. It always amazes me what people see in my photographs that I have not seen—until they point it out. I hadn’t thought about this flower being past its best, but of course you’re right. . . . Well, maybe “best” means different things to different people. Maybe this is the best that this flower would ever look—to me. 😉
