Sunflowers


In some of these images I had a little fun playing around with colors, removing the colors from the sunflowers, or changing them and adding colors to the sky.  They are a great reminder of the solstice.  Today and for the next couple of days the sun angle is about 84.5º or nearly directly overhead.  This is the most direct sun we will receive this year.


Some of these sunflowers remind me of Heart's Sunflower from their Red Velvet Car Album

Sunflower, blooming in your finest hour
You have come into your power
And you spill it over me

Such petals, standing shameless in the air
Catch the eyes of other lovers
With the colors that you wear


Above and Below I count about 20 bees on this for-some-reason preferred bloom.


I have only seen you grow
From the seed I used to know
In the burning breath of summer
The garden's afterglow



I was burning in the sun trying to get these shots.  Notice there isn't a single
cloud in the sky.  I adjusted the color of the sky a little to make it darker.




These flowers also reminded me of The Fith Dimension's Aquarius
I don't know why. . .they're just happy and carefree and kind of like the song. . .


Aquarius - Let the sun shine in
When the moon is in the seventh house 
And Jupiter aligns with Mars 
The peace will guide the planets 
And love will steer the stars 
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius

Harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust abounding 
No more false hoods or derisions, golden living dreams of visions 
Mystic crystal revelations, and the mind's true liberations


When the moon is in the seventh house 
And Jupiter aligns with Mars 
The peace will guide the planets 
And love will steer the stars 
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius 


These images are what I image the future skies will look like with overpopulation, 
climate change and a much warmer world.  
I put brown hues over the blue of the current sky.



Below:  I like this little red beetle with black spots.  
He was keeping his distance from the bees.





Below:  Even the dying sunflowers are somehow special.  
Here I removed their color and added blue to the sky.
