Up through wild flowers
Photo: Dave (Oy) (Fuji X-T4 : 16-55mm F/2.8 )
I love that scene - a worm's eye view of wild flowers against the sky. It's very effective, and a popular composition with artists.
I love photos like this, thanks Dave.
The stem and cluster of leaves are familiar but not the flowerheads. And an early-morning skutch through wiki led me to believe that this flower is Bird's foot trefoil.
That is beautiful. I love wild flowers and the angle at which the photo has been taken, looking up at the sky beyond, is perfect. There are two blossom trees near Abram Park and when my granddaughter Edie was a little girl I used to stand with her looking up at the blue sky through the white blossom every April and told her it was one of the most beautiful sights she will ever see...and it's free. I would like to think she remembers that and passes it on.
I bet this photo reminds a lot of women of there courting days, when courting had to be done in the long grass.
I think you're bob on there Philip , but common or greater I wonder . What great names these wildflowers have . Sneezewort , Toadflax , Biting Stonecrop . All in Catweazle's spellbook no doubt.
Aye, and yer right Poet - what great names. And of your beauty's lesser and greater varieties I'm now aware. Thanks. We'll meet again, at the frog pond o'er the gate. Salmay Dalmay Adonay.
Very nice once again, Dave, thanks.
If you look carefully, you'll see the seed head of the Bird's Foot Trefoil, just to right of centre of picture. Turned over, it resembles a bird's clawed foot.
Will you still remember this , when Winters on the floor ,
Replay your footsteps and ask yourself once more ,
Will your mind still linger and wonder if it’s true ,
if we will return again in some form but still you ?
Beautiful, I haven't been along to Pennington Flash for some time, it's a great place to visit as the different species of birds that can be seen from those hides is wonderful, and those flower beds would attract plenty of insects for the birds to feed on too. The entire photo is superb with the colours complimenting each other.
Lovely photo this Dave thank you.Just watched gardner's world, about wild flowers,and then this photo pops up!!!
