I just love this picture I captured of a neighboring farmer’s sunflower field a couple years ago. It isn’t just the amazingly vibrant yellows and oranges of the petals or the bright blue sky with the fluffy white clouds, it is the lone sunflower that stands with its head held high. The other sunflowers appear to just be waking up to the day, their heads are hanging down to the ground and their petals are not fully opened. The front sunflower has its head held high, petals opened wide, capturing the full day’s sunlight. As the quote says, this sunflower is “choosing to shine” and it is absolutely a stunning sight to see.
