Coming out of the shadows

29 03 2012

The showy bursts of color from spring and summer wildflowers are always attention-getting. It’s usually the bright colors against a cloudless blue sky or filling a huge field that grab you. In this case, the flowers were hillside and not yet fully visible because the sun was just peeking over the top of the hill.

In the shadows the bright yellow flowers are visible as dots while the darker purple ones are at their best in the sun. And there in the full sun is a white Angelica┬áplant, which is a member of the carrot family. It’s literally coming out of the shadows to greet the day.

Photographed at Seljalandsfoss, a waterfall that drops nearly 200 feet. The waterfall is in southwest Iceland, near Reykjavik.
