Frosted Umbellifer


An umbellifer photographed from underneath on the same day as my previous post.

I love umbellifers in all weathers, and looking out from the window of the bus into the pale crisp blue and white landscape,Β  the umbellifers – amidst various pretty hedgerow plants – looked wonderful covered in this spiky hoar frost. I knew I had to find some after I arrived home, and came across this one – clutching at a brightening sky – alongside a frozen crop field.

  1. Beautiful picture.
    I really like the way that the heads further back almost dissolve until they become part of the mist itself. I would have just automatically tried to get the whole plant into sharp focus to contrast with the diffuse sky, but imo the way you have done it is much better!


    • Thank you very much! I’m pleased you like the photo. I love umbellifers and have taken lots of photos of them. I remember struggling to get into position for this one – trying to get the angle right whilst avoiding a distracting hedge on the right! What a long cold Winter that was. I can’t remember any hard frosts at all during the Winter just gone.
