Sunflower fields near Mysore

I don’t get to take photo of a beautiful sunflower field everyday. Last time I stopped by a sunflower field was 3 years ago, somewhere near a village 100kms off Hyderabad. 

After that, there’ve been occasions where I’d pass by a sunflower field. But as used to be in driver’s seat, I’d realize that we’ve crossed/neared a sunflower field little late and reluctant to slow down or take a u-turn, I would think I’ll stop near the next sunflower field and I’d never get one. hello-sunshine1

Recently we stopped near one such field, near Himavad Gopalaswamy betta, Gundlupete, some 100 kms from Mysuru town. Just sharing couple of photos for your eyes. sunflower-field1

Villagers would insist that tourists who enter the fields/take pics give them money. Can’t quite complain because it’s their field and their desire of making a few rupees shouldn’t be termed wrong…

Next time while using sunflower oil, think of these beautiful flowers ;)

Beautiful pictures Shrinidhi. I have never managed to stop by these fields till date. The second picture is quite beautiful.

Brilliant pictures Shrinidhi! I have never seen sunflower fields before live. Have been to this area before though I guess I went in the non flowering season. Next time you go, let me know, I will join in.

Thanks Mridula and Sankara.

I'll inform you next time. We didn't go out looking for sunflower-we accidentally spotted it on our way...

Hi, the pictures are beautiful. Just read the '100kms off Hyd' part. I'm doing a project on sunflower plants and not finding any. If you could help me out with the place, that'd be really great :)Please reply at the earliest, thank you :)
