Golden Ragwort

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 7 May 2009 in Plant & Nature.

One of my favorite spring wildflowers. Over the years, these have spread in my garden from one plant.

A few words about the EXIF data. My new camera and macro lens record the relative or effective f stop, not the one seen on the lens. For an explanation of this, go to the next to the last question at this site.

NIKON D300 1/80 second F/5.0 ISO 200 105 mm

WOW, just an explosion of yellow and green. I gotta say I really like this. The composition is dynamic, the bokeh is interesting without being destracting. An absolutely stunning spring feel. A real treat for the eyes, Anita.

Fresh. Springlike. Cheerful. Playful. Those are words that came to mind while viewing this nicely composed image!

The bright yellow with the greenish yellow Bokeh makes this a beautiful image

I really like how the yellow infuses the whole image . . it is the way we see flowers such as these.
