Sharp-leaved Goldenrod

"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change."
~ Buddha

Taking advantage of a ray of sunlight coming through the thinning forest canopy I took a shot that almost has a studio feel. It took a few minutes to locate the perfect break of light and an area of showdow behind it. I also set the curves in the camera to yield me a high contrast result.

The only post processing is a color saturation boost of onscreen display and some burning along the upper edges.

It’s a Sharp-leaved Goldenrod that blooms in late summer through to late fall and, perennial and supposedly a threatened species. You couldn’t tell by the area I was hiking.
