06.10.2014 And now for something completely…..well not completely, more like a little, maybe somewhat, but not at all the same…different


Well, it is a flower, but not a daisy.  I do have at least one more to post but even a daisy lover needs a break.

So I offer you a few views of Frostweed (Helianthemum canadense).  I’ve been posting to a New England Wildflower Group on Facebook and a more typical and somewhat environmental picture seems more helpful when it comes to identifying things and I often omit such views in my enthusiasm for the more artistic image. So “in situ” for the first photo.Frostweed-061014-600WebI seem to be attracted to yellows lately.  I think the richness of yellow is well represented in flowers and the Frostweed in particular.Frostweed-3-061014-600WebSometimes a slightly angled pose can reveal a very demure personality as we see in the next model.Frostweed-2-061014-600WebMy trip to the waterfall got postponed as the weather seemed unfavorable.  It turned out that the overcast sky would have been great for several hours of water photography, but tomorrow seemed more promising when planning last night.  Hopefully tomorrow will not be too sunny early on.  However, today was a good day for shooting yellow flowers at Quabbin Park.

  1. Mellow yellow is always a special treat for my eyes. These are prettier than the Texas frostweed. NIce shots, Steve.

    I would be proud of any of these Steve. I hope the water photography turns up trumps too. Mellow yellow indeed.


  3. Like you, I generally go for the more artistic picture, and also like you I’m fond of yellow.

    I’d heard of your kind of frostweed because it does the same ice trick as the unrelated frostweed I know from Austin, Verbesina virginica. Have you managed to get any cold-weather pictures of yours doing its ice trick?

    Frostweed – how enchanting, I’ve never seen nor heard of them before. Aren’t they fancy with those stamens? Surely they can’t be weeds? 🙂

    It sure was a great day for shooting yellow flowers!
    Good luck at the waterfall.
