Sunflower Pictures and More

Updated on August 21, 2014

Celebrate the Sunflower

The sunflower is indeed a remarkable flower. It's brilliant colors, it's towering height; they exude a sense of cheer and a reminder of summer. This page is dedicated to the enjoyment of their wonderful blooms.

You'll find sunflower pictures to enjoy as well as some tidbits of knowledge to help you enjoy them in your own yard or home. Take a look around the page and your day may be better for it!

The images below are available as posters on Art.com.


This first image is of a field of sunflowers in summer taken by photographer, Philip Enticknap. This scene is located in Umbria, a hilly region in central Italy.


This sunflower picture shows a beautiful bloom up close. The detail in the petals make this image a stunning one. Danny Burk is the photographer.


This photograph offers a slightly different view of the sunflower fields in Umbria, also taken by Philip Enticknap.


A single bloom is the focus of this photograph. It was captured in Flagstaff, Arizona by photographer John Burcham.


Purple blooms are a lovely complement to the vibrant yellows of a sunflower. This photo presents a wonderful bouquet of the two together. This image was created by photographer Elaine Plesser.


This sunflower picture shows another side of our favorite bloom. The field of sunflowers in the foreground is turned to face an ancient structure, where we presume the sun is setting for the day. The viewer is left standing behind the mass of flowers, apparently only a spectator to this scene. This image was captured by Dallas Stribley in Oristano, Sardinia, Italy.


A grower carries some harvested sunflowers in Washington state, USA. Photographer Aaron McCoy captured this pretty bouquet.


This sunflower picture puts the viewer in the midst of a field of sunflowers, trying mightily to peer over their tops. It provides a great close up encounter with these gigantic blooms. Nicole Katano is the photographer.


This photograph shows sunflowers at dusk, away from the glare of the sun. This image was taken outside of San Francisco, California, USA.


Photographer Gina Martin took this photograph somewhere in the countryside. Once again, the viewer finds themselves placed amongst the towering stalks of sunflowers growing in a field.


This cheerful close up of a sunflower is another created by photographer Nicole Katano. It showcases the varied texture and patterns present on the sunflower face.


This is another view of a simple sunflower bouquet. The muted lighting accentuates the vibrant yellow color of the flowers. This photo demonstrates the joy sunflowers can infuse into even the dreariest spots. Nicole Katano is the photographer once again.


This sunflower picture presents an up close view of a single flower in a field above. The location is not known but the photographer who captured it is Maurizio Rellini.


Photographer Richard Nowitz shot this picture of a sunflower field against a backdrop of rolling countryside. The location isn't identified but perhaps appears to be in Italy.


A single prairie sunflower is shown in this photograph, taken at Palouse Falls State Park in Washington, USA. Chuck Haney is the photographer.


This picture presents a close up view of a Yellow Swallowtail Butterfly, sitting atop a sunflower on a sun drenched day. The photographer is Taylor S. Kennedy.


This image presents an up close look at the face of a cultivated sunflower growing in a field. Although the location isn't specified, the photographer responsible for this lovely shot is Don Grall.


Photographer Dave Watts blesses us with an enchanting close up of a Broad-Billed Hummingbird preparing to feast on a wild sunflower in an Arizona (USA) field.


This image provides a more close upview of the sunflower bloom, with the brightly lit petals of one of these magnificent blooms. Photographer William Swartz shot this picture.


Taken near Frankfort, Kentucky, USA this image provides another close up view of a field of sunflowers. Adam Jones is the photographer.


A beautiful morning scene is shown here. A ruby throated humminbird enjoys feeding from a sunflower in Texas, USA. Rolf Nussbaumer is the photographer.

      I love sunflowers! I remember as a child someone down the street having a bunch of the six footers that really followed the sun all day. It just fascinated me. My ideal kitchen motif is sunflowers. Beautiful lens, thank you!

      Beautiful lens! (And I should know. I live in an old Victorian known as "The Sunflower House" because that is a motif repeated in the wood trim and even on the weathervane!) Blessed by your friendly home décor neighborhood squid angel.
