Sky Reach

New Mexico has a ton of sunflowers, that’s for sure. In some areas, they are everywhere, just absolutely everywhere, and you can’t turn in any direction and not see them. The fields of sunflowers swaying gently in the breeze is an overwhelming sight.

It is hard to describe the feeling you get when you see the endless sunflowers reaching for the endless sky. Everywhere you look, from right in front of you to the edge of everywhere, the sunflowers look toward the sun, greeting it en masse, making for an awe-inspiring and breathtaking sight. Surely, then, this is the picture and the more sunflowers that fit into the frame the better.

But despite the myriad of flowers one in particular caught my eye. There was something poignant about this specific one as it reached for the sky by itself. Alone among many, it stood just a little bit taller than its brethren, and was able, perhaps, to get just a little bit more light. It caught my attention, and I caught this picture. An equal trade, I think.
