We’ve had several misty yet basically rainless days in a row. Supposably* tomorrow will produce more than a mist but I won’t believe it until we see it. However a mist does add a little “atmosphere” to flowers.
As I was driving through Quabbin Park yesterday morning I noticed a few patches of purple, white, and red in an occasionally mowed meadow and turned around to see what was there.
Late Purple American-aster-Symphyotrichum patens. These can be white also but I preferred this color and the way the mist drops are more evident. The other color that attracted my attention was Common Lowbush Blueberry-Vaccinium angustifolium which turns a deep red in Autumn and I did make some images with the white asters but wasn’t really thrilled with many of them.
From a distance the white flowers and red foliage looked like they were tightly mixed but upon closer examination the flowers were more widely distributed so my first visualization did not come to pass but I do like this composition.
*President G. W. Bush used this “word” and was ridiculed for it. Personally I like it and think it’s a nice combination of supposedly and probably. 🙂
