STOPS ALONG THE WAY

WILDFLOWERS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

20 Comments

The Anemone in the first photo was taken in its prime. The New England Aster in the second, though still lovely, was beginning to fade. It is a more durable wildflower and was around to enjoy and photograph for weeks longer than the first. I used to prefer photographing colourful flowers over the white varieties. However, lowering the exposure brings out the fine detail in white subjects, as in this example, revealing a subtle beauty that holds its own against its more colourful rivals.

  1. I like the slightly tattered beauty of the Aster – photographing flowers that are going over or have gone over can be very rewarding.

  6. Great detail on both shots and nice contrast between the “perfect” specimen and the lovely aster that is showing a little more character.

  8. Beautifully done, Belinda! The Anemone is perfection in delicacy, and the New England Aster still holds its beauty as the bloom slowly falls.
