Dandelion, close up, black and white

It's been a long while since I have written here. To my avid readers, welcome back ;). Coaching football really really dominates my time from August to November, plus I was getting ready for the showing at the Gilford Public Library. Anyway... 

I struggled with this shot for a long time. I don't do a lot of black and white, and even less with a macro. It wasn't until I printed it for the show that I decided that it was worthy. The more I look at it, the more I like it. The Dandelion head is a perfect sphere. The individual seeds pop against the dark head of the flower. The 8x10 print crops the stem a little bit, so the flower is more dominant. I am very proud to put my name on it. 


It is available over on my Buy Prints page.
