Backlit Giant Hogweed

Backlit Giant Hogweed

Photo Information
Everyone's nasty flavour of the month after the recent bad press but it still retains its beauty. The bokeh is natural lens flare and I added texture for effect.

I like the flares
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Quite like this. Reminds me of an old Genesis song. Love the back lighting.

I thought of the Genesis song when I saw an item about the hogweed on BBC a couple of days ago. It has its beauty though!

Thanks folks for your comments. I'm not familiar with the Genesis song, being more of a Pink Floyd man myself.
Best wishes

The song is "The return of the giant hogweed". Can be heard here.
Floyd is pretty awesome too. Shame about Richard Wright...
