Photo Friday - Simplicity is Sometimes Best

This was one of those random photos I took just because I wanted to.  I wanted to challenge myself to take a simple picture with a somewhat recognizable background.  Although the blur is a little too much for what I wanted, I still thought it was neat how this sunflower looked against the background of the Badlands. 
We had been walking and hopping around on the rocks in the National Park when I spotted several of these guys growing.  I had to look around for awhile to just find a few grouped together and not a whole bunch. It then took another several tries to get just the one for the picture that I was envisioning in my head.  I did play around with some filters to give it this kind of more earthy feel to it.  Do you ever challenge yourself to take a certain picture?
To see more of my photography you can visit my website here.  This is also part of Outdoor Wednesday.
