Seed Head

Seed Head

Not sure of the botanical identification of this lovely seed head I found in North Central Oregon. Probably a member of the sunflower family. Regardless, I was struck by its ability to maintain its shape while the wind was blowing pretty hard. It must not have been quite ready to spread itself yet.

This image didn’t do anything for me and just sat in the folder for months. I was playing around with Lightroom and happened to hit on this image as an example of an image with lots of detail. Then I reduced the exposure on the background shadows … where usually I want to bring out details. What a difference. A good example of not getting yourself locked into your routine so much that you don’t listen to what the image is telling you.

  • Camera: Fujifilm GFX-50R
