Desert Sunflowers - Two Days Later

Posted by Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 11 May 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

I went back to the Henderson Road area, two day's after yesterday's photo, at sunrise. In this five frame panorama, the sunflowers still look pretty good from a distance. However, I was shocked at how fast they were drying up — stems, leaves, and blossoms. Obviously, they were nearing the end of their bloom.

The desert conditions are tough. It was great that you could see them at their best and presented them to us. Thank you.
