Weekly Photo Challenge: SUN

As we all know, to look directly at the sun for too long is to risk blindness. So let us begin the weekly challenge with an indirect look, via these sunflowers:

In French, tournesol; in Italian, girasole. In both languages, the flowers of the sun, who turn their faces toward our local star as it blazes across our sky, from horizon to horizon. We will let them take the risk, and we will reap the reward of their beauty, borrowed from the sun!

      Happy about that, Nelson! It’s true — you can’t stare directly at the sun for too long —

      (Nice to “meet” you here, I recognize you from Tara’s Finding Strength blog. Amazing, isn’t she?)

      Only in Japan, so far as I know, is the sun feminine.
      The sun goddess, Amaterasu, most sacred focus of worship in Shinto, created the Japanese islands. Must be why I feel such an affinity to Japan.

    I totally love sunflowers, and it was a great ‘take’ on this week’s challenge.

    In Swedish it’s «solros» …sun rose.

  11. Today it is raining buckets. I’m so happy to see this bucket of sunny sunflowers. The colors are eye-popping. I think I need to wear my sunglasses and slather on some sunscreen. Thank you! 🙂
