Black and White: Sunflower


Shades of Sunlight


I think I like the spiky buds of sunflowers better than the actual blossoms.

Dramatic capture of the spiky feature! Grand in monochrome.

A b/w classic! Spectacular take prior to blooming which one seldom sees. Nicely!

Thanks, everyone, for your encouragement! I was pleased with this one too. In fact, it's the first of all my thousands of shots I actually want to print and frame.

Yes, this is definitely worth printing and framing! (Although so are a lot of your other shots, too!) I love sunflowers and this is a wonderful shot. Really effective in b&w.
