Fields of sunflowers the perfect backdrop for your selfie indulgence


“I am working with the enthusiasm of a man from Marseilles eating bouillabaisse, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to you because I am busy painting huge sunflowers.”    Vincent Van Gogh


No other flower commands the attention like a sunflower.

A massive bloom balanced precariously atop a stock that really looks quite insufficient to do the job. It’s burgeoning flower hosting a colony of seeds, each one destined to mimic and replicate the mother plant.

Rising skyward and dwarfing all others, the sunflower perks up at sunrise and follows the sun across the sky, finally bowing good tidings as the warm orb dips below the horizon.

And like Van Gogh, we arrive at a field of sunflowers with excitement and glee – an opportunity to capture the majestic beasts in all their glory – and, perchance, the opportunity to create a selfie for the ages.

Budding photographers and influencers take note – York Region is home to four magnificent sunflower fields – there’s sure to be one near you.

Enjoy the experience and frolic through the fields – unleash your inner creative and be like Vincent.
