I have to hold onto these bits of sun because we just don’t see too much of it during the winter and well, winter is almost here and I’m panicking with thoughts of white everywhere, land, sky, just white, for months on end. No sunshine, ever - well, okay, rarely.  Is it possible to have the winter blahs before winter even gets here?


Which one should I frame to help brighten my winter days?

  1. I vote for #5. The shot that seems to just go on f o r e v e r!! I love all of them though, Lisa! Absolutely awesome photography!!! You ROCK! I hear ya...not looking forward to months of white and cold. But, I do not spend much time outside at all. I enjoy alot more papercrafts during the winter!!

  2. I Love all of them, but my favorite is the last one. Frame it!

    I've presented you with another bloggy award!! Yay! Check it out over at my bloggy blog! Hugs!

  3. Oh Lisa...and here I am, all morose because I hate DC's winters. Yikes. I bow to your superior winter-survival skills! As far as which one to frame...it is a difficult choice. I think one of the pics with multiple flowers would be nice, since it would remind you that you'll see those fields of dancing flowers again. However...one of the closeups would be gorgeous too...you can see why I'm no help with these things.

  4. Number 4, I think. Because there's LOTS of sunshine there with a little close up too.

  6. Hey Lisa! Those are gorgeous sunflowers, I would frame a large print of the 3rd or 5th one and then do a couple small prints for your bathroom(s)... because you're in there everyday and they would make a great start and finish to every day. :o)

  9. Wonderful shots all...I can feel the sun's warmth coming through them. Yes, the number of warm, sunny days are waning...hard to believe.

  10. Hi Liza all the pictures are beautiful but if i were you, frame the picture of the whole field..

  11. I don't know how to decide! They are all so wonderful - perhaps a collage would be good. But if I had to pick #3 and #7 are my favorites.

  12. Lovely shots of the sunflower field :)
    Certainly made my day!

  13. The fifth shot is captivating, I loved the fields. :)
    I wish I could walk into it.

  14. PS: Now I have Sting's "Fields of Barley" stuck in my head...

  15. There are so many delicious shots here. How can you choose just one? I'd go for several, or at least three so I had a series on my wall.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It's cloudy, cold and gray here today and I just want to keep these shots up on the computer for some cheer. Love all of them. I would go with a series. Someone could do a whole room around these beautiful photos. Thanks for the day brightener!

  17. My faves are the bud or the back of the sunflower. Of course, they're all wonderful photos.

    ReplyDelete
  18. 3,4,or5 but I LOVE them all!!!!!Sunflowers always make me smile! Can I have one too?!
    And yes it is possible to get winter blahs before winter is even here. It happened to me every fall before I had my first son...now it hits me after his birthday. I can feel it coming even now.

  19. I love sunflowers (really is there anyone who doesn't?) Those are all just awesome shots!

    ReplyDelete
  20. These are all wonderful and would brighten any winter day. I would frame #5 because of the depth. Without a defined horizon it looks like a field without end! That would be great wallpaper, too, and I don't mean just on a computer. Numbers 6 and nine would also be fun to photoshop with a watercolor or oil effect. I am usually a purest when it comes to photos, but the "PS Toys" make some interesting framables.

  21. Shoot, Lisa, with these gorgeous beauties, why stop at one? Line your room with them! They're just gorgeous and definitely sunshiny.

  22. i think the sunflower bud is best to frame liza. it reminds us that no matter what, still there's gonna be sunshine to come!

    have a great week ahead!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love your last sunflower picture. I'd frame that one in a second!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow! That is the sunniest bunch of photos that I've ever seen in one place. Beautiful. I think I'd frame the one that isn't opened yet. I'm thinking it shows the promise of warmer days to come. :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow, hey, you got some bugs in that first one. Purty. You'll get into the winter once it happens and there's no turning back. Let's have some kind of winter weather photo contest. And besides, today is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like # 3 and the very last one!!!! =)

    Don't get the winter blahs yet!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would frame that last one on canvas. SO lovely Lisa. I'm so bummed winter is rapidly approaching too. And I adored your ladybug comments - aren't they HORRID!

  28. I came across your blog from Alisha and I took the time to scroll through your pictures. I have a Cannon Rebel as well and I'm excited to see what my camera can do. I have always had an interest in photography and after looking through Alisha and yours, I can't wait to get out and take more pics. I liked #4 the best. The angle with the sunflowers is awesome. I would love to follow your blog and if you don't mind, I will put your blog on my blogroll.
    Please stop by sometime.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You really couldn't go wrong with any of these, but I'm partial to #8, #10 and #1... and I hope I counted right.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Fear not the great white out called winter! Surround yourself with your own fine work, and all will be well.

    These are wonderful, wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  36. These are all beautiful, Lisa! I think you need to hang a grouping of them or maybe several in a collage frame. I love how the sun is shining through the petals in one of the pics.

    Oh my! A whole field of sunflowers! Wow! Beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  42. it's difficult to decide but i'd go for the third photo --- so you can have lots and lots of sunshine to last the whole winter months :)... and besides, i like the composition and i can feel the sun beaming on those sunflowers on the first row... winter can be dreary, but with these flowers, they take the gloominess away :)

    Stunningly gorgeous, L. And, actually I'm going to email you in a bit as I have a question to ask. I hope I remember. Geez. I'm such a freak lately.

  46. Do a collage. This may very well be the best collection of excellent sunflower pictures I have EVER seen!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow! I am bowled over by the lovely photos. Never seen anything like it. Came over from david's. You deserve POTD!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Frame the one lifting its head to the sky about to open, the eternal proimse of sunshine. Congratualtions on POTD, fantastic. Isn't David ace?! MH

    ReplyDelete
  49. Over here from David and oh what stunning piccies, I adore the last one and the one looking at the back of the sunflower - great job

  50. I love sunflowers!!! ALL of your photos are SPECTACULAR … and each would certainly brighten your day for sure. I can’t really choose a favorite … but the first one with the bees is unique … the 3rd, 4th, and 5th of the field of flowers make me smile … as does the 6th just opening. Sorry I’m no help here. Would you mind if I snagged a couple to use for ‘awards’ … I’d give you credit, but it’s okay to decline if you’d rather not.
    Hugs and blessings,
