Miles and Miles of Sunflowers!

I flew my wife and her teammate to El Paso and back over the weekend to compete in tennis sectionals. Two grueling 5-hour round trips, and too hazy to see much of anything in either case, until…

Just 15 minutes from home, I encountered horizon-to-horizon gold! All that yellow is wildflowers, most if not all, sunflowers!

Talk about the power of numbers! Imagine how many plants it takes to carpet so many square miles, vividly viewed from a speeding airplane several thousand feet in the air!

If anyone’s interested in having one of these as a Fine Art Metal Print, please drop me a message. (See my current Views from the Flying Carpet and Down to Earth Fine Art Metal Prints.)

    1. Thanks, Bryan! We have been incredibly fortunate here to have the rain that stimulated all these wildflowers. We had a year of almost no precipitation, culminating in pre-evacuation status for wildfires in June. But then the rain started with 5 inches in one weekend, followed by a significant summer monsoon. So compared to our friends elsewhere in the West and Northwest we feel mighty fortunate to be experiencing this beauty.
