My last image showed signs of Past, Present and Future..........this one is definitely "Past".
Taken against a dark backdrop and with fill-in flash in daylight, it's identity again eludes me: the idea for the shot arose from a prompt from a fellow Glasgow member.
Details: see EXIF
My thanks to all who visited my last posting.......your comments are so much appreciated.
Stunning shot Ronnie, fantastic light and detail, beautifully captured and presented.
good morning ronnie
the light and detail are fantastic a stunner top shot
Great light and detail Ronnie unusual shot.Well done..Lin
Well past it Ronnie,
and all the better for it !!
Good grotty shot.
Ageing beauty, presented beautifully.
I'm not going to even hazard a guess on this one Ronnie (though it could be a Willowherb of some sort?) but it makes a great picture.
Its a great shot Ronnis, reminds me of 'after the flood'.........
Beautiful image, so well taken Ronnie..........Sandy
Love the way your image stands out from the b/g excellent shot
Once again, Patrick has come to my rescue with a suggestion re. ID.......and I think he is again 100% correct......these are seed heads of Rosebay Willow Herb.
Yes, pretty certain this is the dreaded Willowherb (Fireweed I think in the US). At the best stage for it IMHO!!!
Was beaten to the ID this morning, Ronnie! A lovely capture, still beauty in death. Carol
It definately meets your criteria of "past it" Nicely presented Ronnie.
Lovely lighting against the black BG Ronnie, lifts the plant right out of the image.
Great sharp shot, and lovely lighting Ronnie. Moira
Roll on spring time when nature wakes and plants etc burst into life and colour...................I can't wait
Beautiful detail Ronnie.
Certainly a RB Willowherb seed head, nice one
Very nice image Ronnie great tones and detail well taken.
Wonderful detail in this one Ronnie.
Wonderful detail and light in this one Ronnie - Carole
good use of the fill in flash here Ronnie has done the trick and could well be willowherb
Happy new week
The lighting lifts this nicely from the background Ronnie, good details too
Made ever so much stronger by that diagonal composition.
A bit like me, Ronnie, past my best! Hopefully not photography-wise, anyway A beautifully captured image, and wonderfully lit as always
a wonderful graphic image, the 'frozen' effect is intriguing
we got something like this in the Wet West as well... the small hairy willowherb it comes with some tiny blue flowers and withers to a very similar fluffy thing. yours seems to be more furry, like the Scottish cattle!
A fine piece of detective work by Patrick
Lighting and the detail is excellent Ronnie, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Yes I thought rosebay willow herb (or rbwh as it's known in our family)! It grows so well in the north of England and Scotland. Love the lighting.
Very nice Ronnie, super light .................Rob
Superb photography Ronnie,
I think it's definitely Willow Herb Ronnie, it's quite interesting seeing wild flowers go through their life cycle, Cow Parsley for instance looks quite arty when it dries out. Willow Herb looks quite cottony near its final stages, well worth noting.
Very intelligent piece of work, Ronnie, the bg and the fill-in flash combine to really lift this 'ghost' from the past. Excellent.
Interesting shot, beautifully used the light.. yes, definitely "Past".
Very different Ronnie, and like the angle you have it on
Unusual but stunning shot, Ronnie. Wonderful light and detail. Beautifully captured and presented
Take care, Pauline
Good shot Ronnie ,definately willow herb .
Interesting delicate pattern and certainly looks well against black. No idea what it is Ronnie. Paul
I quite like this image, add my vote to all the rest
Superb textures and comp, Ronnie. Very original work.
An excellent botanical study Ronnie, past its best it may be but it has made a good photographic subject
Great light and detail Ronnie,very well captured............
Trust you to get such a stunning image from literally nothing Ronnie, beautifully presented too!
