The Sunflower Field of Lopburi, Thailand

The Sunflower Field of Lopburi, Thailand

Someone just said that he can’t remember Lopburi looking like this. What he recalls is a small dusty town with white chalk dust everywhere. But this is what I saw outside the Lopburi town, a vast field full of these bright yellow flowers in full bloom. The field seems to stretch as far as the mountains which serves as its backdrop. This sight gave me a wonderful feeling. It’s beautiful and it reminded me of God’s artistic nature.

The challenge was to find the row of the best sunflowers for the photo. But I remember that Van Gogh’s sunflowers were dying and not the prettiest. Yet they were painted and celebrated. Van Gogh painted four of these sunflowers paintings. I saw one of them in the National Gallery of London.
