Sunflowers in the Mountains / Sonnenblumen in den Bergen

in photography •  19 days ago 

This sunflower field was newly created this year and is located on the Farchtensee country road (road over the Windische Höhe Pass) in the mountains between the villages Stockenboi and Sankt Stefan in the Gail Valley (Gailtal).

Dieses Sonnenblumenfeld wurde heuer neu angelegt und liegt an der Farchtensee Landesstraße (Straße über die Windische Höhe) in den Bergen zwischen Stockenboi und Sankt Stefan im Gailtal.

A few days ago I have already posted this sunflower in a black and white version: Sunflower in Black&White / Sonnenblume Schwarzweiß. Today you can see and compare the same flower in color.

Vor ein paar Tagen habe ich diese Sonnenblume bereits in einer Schwarzweiß Version gepostet: Sunflower in Black&White / Sonnenblume Schwarzweiß. Heute könnt ihr die gleiche Blume in Farbe sehen und vergleichen.

At the beginning of August, only a few sunflowers bloomed in the large field.

Anfang August waren erst wenigen Sonnenblumen auf dem großen Feld aufgeblüht.

While taking the photos, a bumblebee decided to land on the sunflower. She would not have had much choice anyway ;)

Während ich die Fotos machte, hat sich auch eine Hummel entschlossen, auf der Sonneblume zu landen. Viel Auswahl hätte sie ohnehin nicht gehabt ;)

I remember the B&W version and would hate to choose between color and B&W so cool the bee decided to land and pose for a shot :)

That bumblebee makes the difference, I knew it ;) Thank you, my friend 😊

Ohh Yes Bumblebee excuse me for insulting it and calling it a common Bee, I would hate to offend it and have t not make any more appearances LOL

No problem, it's just a big bee - the field is about 100 kilometres away, and I will not tell the bumblebee anything ;) lol

Phew I a relieved i have not offended it :)

Nice big fat sunflower! This flower is really bigger than the ones we have here!
I wonder if we could eat those big petals as salad!? They look very delicious and juicy!!

They make oil / Pumpkin seed oil from the seeds (, but I don't know, if anything else of this flower is eatable :)
Thank you for your kind comment, dear @kaminchan, have a great day 😊

It's a lonely little sunflower, but, it has enough beauty to pull it off. Oh, in another few weeks, it will be exploding in sun and flowers!

Have a great night!


Good morning, and thank you, I had a great, but short night, because I went on a little hike this morning and therefore had to get up at 2:30 :)

I hope, I don't miss the time, when they flower. The sunflower field is situated from east to west, so I might even get some nice sunset photos :)

Thank you so much for your nice comment and for the tip, Denise, have a great day 😊

Don't forget to check those sunflowers almost every other day, they are so fleeting and burst forth without notice. I missed one of the fields here, sadly. So I am searching for another one.

Oh, sunset and sunflowers! Oh, the words I would want to write to go with that! ;)

Thank you and may your day be a awesome!

That would mean about 1 hour driving and then a few kilometres on a narrow mountain road - I think, I will just wait a few days and then make a trip there ;)

Yeah, hopefully the sun will set like my photo app says :)

May your day be even better 😊

:) Point taken! I expect magnificence from you!

I will try to give my best :)

Thank you very much, @steemitbd, your service sounds interesting.

The only one but so cute 😍
Here their season of blooming is almost over by now.

There were a few other sunflowers blooming also, but only a few in this big field ;)
If I can, I will drive up there again in a few days, and hopefully more sunflowers will be blooming by then :)
Thank you very much for your nice comment, dear @zirochka, have a nice evening 😊

It is always a pleasure :) I love all your photos :)

Thank you so much, @zirochka, reading such nice words makes a boring work day easy 😊

Can only agree. To work on nice summer day is so unfair :)
Have a wonderful day! (work or not ;o))

This is, why I finish my work day at 12 today and take a few days off - my next work day will be next week 😊 Hopefully the weather will be nice during this long weekend.

What a luck! Hope you have big plans for these days :) I wish you have perfect weather for a perfect vacations!

Thank you :) I have no plans, I'm just tired of working ;) lol
If the weather is nice I want to make a few short motorbike trips around Carinthia, but nothing special.

This post looks familiar. You mean someone came along and on purpose planted a sunflower field??

You are right - I photographed the black&white sunflower there, which I posted without permission the other day.

When I drove by this place in spring there was no field there. I saw a farmer with his tractor plowing the mountain meadow, but I did not know what he would sow. Last week I was there again and there was this sunflower field 😊

Yes sir, you are lucky that the steemit posting police didn't arrest you for posting flowers in a different, unapproved format! I think you were very lucky this time.

Very interesting about the farmer. You would be no good at that job because you would eat all the seeds before they could get planted!

I do love the sunflower seeds, and I really might need all the seeds, which were used for this field, to get my belly full ;) lol

... if the steemit posting police arrests me and puts me into the jail, where Mrs. J. works I would not mind ;)

lol! She would take very good care of you sir johannpiber! lol. I love those seeds too and I think they are very healthy for you.

If I should ever get imprisoned, I hope it will be in the prison, where Mrs. J. works 😁
Yes, I have also heard, that sunflower seeds should be healthy.

Posted using Partiko Android

yes and you can get those in prison too! lol. And if you are there I'll come visit you and maybe we can arrange a jail break! lol.

Sunflowers in a prison? Nice :)
I hope I have internet there, because I don't want to miss my daily Steemit post, or the jail break has to happen sooner ;)

Sunflowers are one of my favourite flowers @johannpiber not just for their extravagant beauty but for all the other benefits they give us. Great photos, especially the close up of that radiant sunflower with the hungry bee in the centre.

Thank you so much, Trudee, I do also like these flowers very much, and I am glad, that so many people show their sunflower photos these days 😄
This Bumblebee has been very fast, and this photo was the sharpest out of quite a few 😁
