I have been watching this one field of sunflowers since we first arrived. There are actually about 3 or 4 fields in the same area. At first, when it was just all green, I didn't even realize it was sunflowers. Then when the heads of the flowers started to form I realized what it was. We drive by it almost everyday and I have watched it slowly change. The petals started to inch their way out and before long it was just a sea of yellow. It's a sight to behold. I couldn't get myself up high enough to give you the full view. It is an entire field of flowers. I am assuming that the farmers raise them for the seeds. I'll be gone before they have gone to seed though so I'll never know what it looked like in the end. I have a feeling they look really cool all spent and dried waiting for the seed harvest. Here are a few shots, enjoy!
For these next ones, I added some texture overlays and played with some cool borders. You like?
One of the (many) cool things about the field is that it is swarming with big bees. They don't bother you but while I was shooting, I could hear them buzzing right by my ear.
We leave Bezenac on Saturday and head back to Paris. Then a day or later we hop the flight back home. It is so hard to leave...
