Tag Archives: cow parsley
The bridleway stretches for almost one mile, fringed on both sides, at this time, by cow parsley throughout its entire length. I am not a great lover of cow parsley, but I am attracted by the ‘architecture’ of the growth beneath the canopy of white florets.
I have chosen to lightly posterize this image to draw attention to the pattern, lines and textures rather than present a straight photo of cow parsley.
Much of my photography serves as a diary recording or celebrating experiences and happenings, however small, as they occur. Today’s picture belongs to this category. Three days ago, beside the bridle way, I glimpsed the first red campion of the year, nestling beneath the young cow parsley. At present it is alone, but no doubt it will soon be joined by others. It may not be a technically accomplished photo but the joy it records was immense.
