Skeletons of Sunflowers by lorrainemd Skeletons of Sunflowers by lorrainemd
Taken roadside in central Mexico, these sunflowers were being blown about by the strong and glorious breeze.
I submitted a tiny version of this my first day at DA....this is a new improved version....bigger and better Photoshop. please enjoy full view.

Ahhh....the beauty of nature.

Makes you wonder if reality ever looks that way, or if you are just a highly talented photographer.

I love this shot. THIS shot of yours captures what was in my mind's eye when I took this macro shot of a tomato blossom. [link]

I love good shots that capture the intensity of natural things.

As my favorite type of flower, I am partial to thinking this is great..especially so with the appearance of them being destroyed by a strong wind. Interesting.

I didnt read all the comments so if someone has already mentioned this just ignore this but I think it is neat how if you really look at the flowers they *shouldnt* look very good ... some insect has been eating on that one big leaf and one of the flowers is dead or dying but yet the picture is still beyond beautiful. Just goes to show perfection isnt required for something to be pretty.

This is an awesome shot that shows the true beauty of nature! I love the colour contrast you captured very well. The colours are so vivid and also the composition marvellous. I took a shot that is quite similar [link] also flowers torn in the wind, I love that!
