Sunflower field - Helianthus in the sky

A lot of time is passed from my last post... Did I say you that I got married? (well... it's more than a year that we got married...)
The fact is that when you start to live together with your beloved one, your life change, and so do the things you do :-)
One of the things that changed is how we spend our spare time: I spend more time on technology-related things (lately you can find more posts on my tech blog) and I do less photos (and so I post less on this blog)

Anyway... for my daily commute I pass between many fields, and some week ago I saw some amazing sunflowers fields. Each day I looked at them... and I decided I need to take some photos: the sunflower fields are too nice! :-)
So, one evening, on my way back to home, I phoned my wife and told her "darling, I'll be home a bit late today..." and I spent about one hour between the sunflowers! :-)

Please, ignore the not-so-serious caption under the following photos :-)

Hello, I'm a sunflower, look what a nice sky there is today.

I have a lot of friends too!
 I'm just disclosing my eyes on the world...
 Taller than the others!
 Something geometrical....

The sky behind!

 Sometime we look down...
 A yellower shade of pale :-)

 Everybody, together!
 High, into the sky!
 Sunflower: proud to be one!

Overall experience: very satisfying :-)

Snow on the countryside: Tractor tracks on ice - Icy path through field

Here are what tractor tracks looks like after some snow and ice.

Blurred away, near the tree, there is a car with a man standing near it: maybe I was not the only one taking some photos of this nice landscape :-)

Snow on the countryside: Snow and ice, a frozen still life

Here is another frozen puddle.
I liked the strange shape of the ice :-)
I also find interesting the contour of snow and earth.

Snow on the countryside: Crack! - Walking on (thin) ice

 Here you can admire my foot, in all its magnificence :-)

And this is what happen when you walk on thin ice: You mustn't do it...
...unless you are a photographer who is trying to break a frozen puddle (no more deep than an inch) to take a photo of it :-)
