Dandelion Time – Daily Photo (7th July 2012)


I have taken loads of lovely photos of our common as muck Dandelion Clock that every one knows and loves. A fluffy white cloud suspended in a sea of green as usual. I was looking for a way to make this image stand out from my other shots and after playing with several filters and sliders I opted for this high contrast B&W, each of the seeds fluffy umbrellas is a mini firework with filaments radiating out from the centre and picked out neatly in black against the white fluff around them.

Very happy with the end result, just wish I had paid a little more attention to the composition and had moved that piece of grass from the bottom left.

Taken near Stockley Park, London on Thursday 28th June.
