…the sunflowers go to sleep

I found this field of sunflowers in Lower Austria near Drosendorf in the so called Waldviertel. Most of the sunflower fields have already been harvested, but this one was still standing and the flower were in full bloom.

driving by on my way “home” i simply had to stop and take this photo and enjoy the view.

there are some beautiful moments in life…
