Somewhere between Berlin and Leipzig, Germany, taken on July 18, 2015
On the way from Berlin to Leipzig, we passed by a gorgeous field of sunflowers and I grabbed my camera as quickly as possible to snap this photo. No blue skies like the ones near Royan and definitely not as close up, but appealing in its own rights 🙂
No lavenders in Provence nor tulips in Keukenhof this year, but what a blessing it was to see the sunflower fields today, row on row, stretching without end towards the blue sky, beyond the vast horizon. To be in touch with nature in its purest form, to listen to the voice of the truest beauty speaking through the wind – such marvel and awe. If anything was worth the trouble of going all the way, this was it.
