'On Cloud Nine'



This week I'm taking part in Carlotta's 'On Cloud Nine' challenge. It's uploading a picture that fills you with joy. Well, this week I decided to upload a picture from of our sunflower (Which is, sadly, dead now.) But, thankfully, I enjoy photography, so I was able to capture it in its prime. What I love about this picture is the gorgeous green center of the sunflower that fades into brown, then the yellow petals contrasted against the blue and white sky. The slight fading on the petals is from my lens being blurry. (Which I didn't realize until I started editing it on the computer.)
