The strenghts of a flower…. the sunflower…

The sunflower is one of the strongest  flowers turning to the sun all the times. These images portray the sunflower from a different perspective. As at times I capture the back  of a flower, which in the sunflower presents also the strengths of the neck of it. The strengths is also our back bone at these times . Erect your self to an upright  pasture , just as the sunflower does and face the sunlight. Enjoy what you see and feel.
