Sunflower Field

I shot the Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) field pictures a few weeks ago, but didn't post them in the hope of getting some better photos. The sunflower season is almost over and being a lazy person, I could not get more pictures. Due to poor light I have to re-expose the pictures for a better view. Our farmers grow sunflower in a very small quantity for their personal use. The seeds are crushed into oil locally. After frying the crude oil, it's used as edible oil without any further treatment or process.

I love sunflowers and your pictures are beautiful. I remember when we bought our farm the previous owners had let the sunflowers take over every square inch of the farm. My husband was in the midst of a nightmare trying to get them under control. I kept telling him they were lovely, he said "weeds aren't lovely!" LOL it is a matter of perspective. We had lots and lots of sunflower bouquets for awhile much to his irritation...hehehe

Thanks Shelly Cox for your visit and sharing your story. Actually some people don't like sunflowers for their hairy leaves and stem.

The photos are well-taken, i think this might be the same place that I have added as 'Sunflowers Of Swabi' to my blog.

I like all these pictures. The last shot is interesting with the very white sky.

I also love your avatar and the other photos on your blog.

Thanks Osaid for the comment. Of course same district, however there is about 5kms distance between the two places.
