I had a little time to kill after the Hop Brook image this morning and a mobile blood sampling so headed back to the mucky unnamed brook near the Cadwell Memorial Forest in Pelham to see how the Marsh Marigold-Caltha palustris flowers were doing. They were opaque this time and I made several images. I usually try to find a composition with three blooms but liked these enough as a pair.
One thing I liked was the plant’s leaves below the flowers so there was no bright water spots or dried tree leaves to distract. The polarizer eliminated the glare and the petals and anthers get all the attention. The pistils are mixed in with the stamens.
