03.17.2019 Black and White Bloodroot

With Spring ephemeral season approaching, I’ve been reviewing my flora archives and thought this opening Bloodroot would convert well.

Like most of us, I have just about had my fill of Winter. Although not my favorite season, it has afforded many opportunities to capture some nice ice images. New England has seen a warming trend lately, although for a few more days we’ll feel a chill.  Still a month or so to go until we start to see these and other Spring beauties (including Spring Beauties) but at least it is finally the near future.

    I like the little peek inside that bloodroot occasionally offer, and you artfully show here.

  2. Good for you for getting so much in focus. The leaf patterning intrigues.

  3. The structure of the leaves is great, they could almost be components of a geodesic dome or something. And the flower makes a beautiful little shrine. An unusual and really successful picture.

    It looks like two quite different plants have been merged. The monochrome really does show off the deep embossing in that leaf, and I agree that the bloom seems like a mysterious little lantern, or shrine. I’m not so quick to assume we don’t have such plants down here, now that I know a tiny bit about east Texas, and the piney woods. Sure enough, this is shown in really far east Texas — but it’s here.

    Once again i’ve fallen terribly behind, and I’m so happy to see this. I love Bloodroot. I miss it! Perfect subject for black and white! Oh those leaves clasping the buds, just the best!! Especially coming up through a lot of dry, brown dead leaves on the forest floor. A beautiful image, Steve!
