My friend Lisa Hawkins  https://www.flickr.com/photos/80616930@N02/ and I headed out to Allora a few weeks ago in search of sunflowers only to find that we were too early and that they had only just been planted.  Since then, we had heard that they were blooming at Nobby on the Darling Downs so we jumped in the car and headed out there on New Years Day.

We had the most stunning day with the bluest of skies and lots of wispy clouds around. Once we arrived we were greeted by the most amazingly healthy sunflowers the size of dinner plates. This field of sunflowers went on for as far as the eye could see. I just loved the contrast of colours – from the red of the earth to the green and gold of the crop to the blue of the sky.

We stayed on for sunset, the light as the sun went down was beautiful.

We headed home happy and tired and I couldn’t wait to get home to process the images.
