A Favorite Photo

Sunflower rays

The Gardening Gone Wild Photo Contest for June asks for us to submit the “best frame we have ever created”.  Now that’s a tall order — to pick one picture out of thousands.  Asking for garden relevance narrows the field somewhat but it still a lot of photos to review.  As the judge, Joshua McCullough of PhytoPhoto notes, the perception of a photo changes with time so the question is really what is your favorite photo today?  I think pictures also carry stories in your mind and that influences how you see a photo.  Anyway, for me, for today, the above image of a sunflower captures the sense of the rising sun, with a horticultural vision of the start of the day…

    That truly is a great image. Sunflowers are so wonderful. Not only are they beautiful, but they are the living exemplar of the Fibonacci sequence, so melding gardening and math. . .

    Good luck with the contest.

    This is a wonderful shot of the sunflower – full of the hope that a brand new day brings – it tells a story, is beautiful and is technically outstanding. Best of luck in the competition.
