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...
