The enthroned Queen. We are in Arches National Park in Utah which looks like a cross between Petra, Egypt, and some alien world.

Sunburst~

Stunning images by Cindy Knoke. Would love to see this as a children’s story … 🙂

DSC00883

The sunflowers grew tired of growing in their garden.

DSC00918
So they picked up long legs and walked away.

DSC08252
After traveling awhile, they arrived at The Holler, hot and bothered.
DSC00863
They realized too late, as we often do, how good they had it in their garden.

DSC08251
I put them in water, and took their photos, cheering them up considerably.

DSC00886
I hope their sunburst cheers you too~

Note: the color in these photos is not enhanced. I have been experimenting with food coloring in flower water. Blue makes some incredible effects which I will show you later. If you’re interested check out:
