Common Mullein

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 25 October 2011 in Plant & Nature.

One of the few flowers still blooming in the back part of the county park. I believe it is a Common Mullein, a non-native.

Like a sumptuous drawing in oil pastels.
Your rich dark background is the perfect home for the lovely yellow flower !!

That is pretty amazing for late October. Nicely executed. Your texture is appropriate for the season.

I particularly like the painterly aspect of this. But, as always, your post-processing shouldn't take our eye off of how carefully and skillfully you compose your shots.
