09.17.2018 Another Roadside Attraction

Just a quiet foggy day in Quabbin Park on Saturday.  Shortly before the scene with the goldenrod I came across this which is a repeat of something I shot two years ago.  At that time there were black-eyed susans…this time calico asters and goldenrod.

  1. Very pretty. Quiet too, at that time of day … I hope, at least.

    I like the strong pathway of white that cuts diagonally through the photo: from the spider web in the lower right through the three white birches at the upper left. In truth, the asters are perfect for this composition. Together with the webs, the rocks and the trees, they help to pull the image together.

  4. Beautiful. It would have drooled over this scene if had happened upon one similar to this one here in Texas. The grasses looks very much, like one that grows here. It is called purple threon but of course it is not purple and has always looked pink to me. This particular grass is used quite a lot in landscape plantings especially in the hill country- in the city and in the suburbs as well.

    The composition of your photo is perfect with the addition of the large grayish boulder and the trees in the background.

    You are mighty brave to use your camera while standing in the road. At least that is my understanding of how you got this photo.

    • It’s a park road and was at 6:45 on Sunday morning so not much traffic. Had there been more I’d have parked myself elsewhere. People are used to cars stopping although generally that is to watch deer or turkeys and not some turkey photographing a rock. 🙂

      I should ID that grass as it was also a key component of my composition.

    I love this look – so beautifully composed and processed. Subdued and full of interesting things to look at.

    What I see here is a wonderful community of plants, in harmony. Much we can learn from truly seeing Nature.

    • Humans have endeavored, whether consciously or not, to remove ourselves from the ecology of the Earth. Conversely, we have worked our hardest, it seems, to destroy the ecology of the Earth. Left to itself, the planet will achieve a fluctuating balance with ups and downs that adjust for changes and return to equilibrium for a while before returning to the cycle. Organized chaos.
      This community changes through the seasons with different plants flowering and fading as the year advances.
