Wildflower ( 1 img )
Posted By: sajmmiller, 06-29-2008, 03:41 PM

Went for a quick walk on my favorite trail this morning. Only shot one frame. This wildflower was sticking up all by itself and illuminated by by a small spot of sun in a dark area. I was pleased with how this came out, especially after thinking that I'd go home empty handed. C&C always appreciated.

You nailed it! Nice shot! Cropping out the little bud on the bottom may enhance the flower even more. Love the bokeh!

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks J.Scott! I debated about cropping out the bud, but thought I liked it better leaving it. I'll play around with it some more.

Thanks everyone. I was lucky to be passing by when the light was just right. I need to figure out what kind of flower this is.... anybody have any ideas? It was at the end of a 3-foot tall stem containing multiple flowers, and each flower was about 3/4" in diameter. I really need to get a field guide for this area.

Great shot. I love flower shots. I think the plant may be chicory. Beautiful.

Beautiful Scott! It is perfect to me. Excellent sharpness and detail in the flower and the background is perfect. It must not have been too windy? That is my biggest challenge with long stemmed flowers is the wind.

Susan,
Thank you for identifying the plant! Since taking the photo, I've noticed it growing alongside the roads. Nice to know what it is, and that it should be edible.

LaRee,
The wind almost always blows here, except when it's too hot to be outside. About the time I was getting frustrated, my wife walked up and grabbed hold of the stem to stabilize it. Thanks for commenting!
