[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Good Morning Everyone,

Another beautiful morning here in the U.K. As I type this onto the computer, the sun is streaming in through the window. I hope it is as pleasant for you.

Today, I am posting a shot of a foxglove (digitalis). I have seen many shots of the purple foxglove but not that many of the white variety. I found this growing alongside the purple ones, under trees near a riverbank. The perfect location for such plants. (It was easier to photograph in partial shade as we all know what havoc bright sunshine and white can create!)

If you click here you will find out some truly interesting information about foxgloves.

Many thanks for stopping by.
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. :-)

Hand held.

hi Beverley
splendide macro florale, les gouttes d'eau apportent une belle impression de fraicheur à l'ensemble. Bonne gestion des contrastes, netteté impeccable.

Hi Beverley,

What a nice photo! You captured the image of this plant in such a beautifull mild light. Very good rendering of the colors. The wather drops add freshness to the image and life to the photo.

Thank you for sharing,

Hello Bev,
Very beautiful capture of this white Foxglove. Very sharp details, also of the raindrops, and it looks so beautiful against the soft green background. The light is perfect too!
It's very hot here today, that's why I'm sitting by my computer!
TFS and regards, Ulla

I may have learned this lesson before and will remark at the name, but will go to the Google to find out..is that where the medicine comes from. If so..I am not surprised. We get so many of our meds through herbs and floras...and sometimes even in the algae...Well framed and simple with good succinct notes.

Ciao Bev, splendid view of lovely with wonderful details, great focus with lovely blurry BG, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Beverley. This is one of the most Beatiful of wild flower around at least that what i think. So tall and elegant. They always look as if some one has flicked paint at them. i like the tall thin cropp . good detail and colours. well done TFS.

Hello Bev. This is just gorgeous, Stunning white petals and the droplets under well lit framing is just brilliant. The pleasing green background is well controlled and nicely framed for TN. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

Hi Beverley.
Amazing in every aspect shot. I like it a lot. You have produce a true masterpiece. Superb flowers, outstanding reproduction of all them nice features. Exposure, colours, details/sharpness are wonderful as well as the terrific BG. Bravo and my congratulations.

Hello Bev,
This is a great composition of Foxglove well captured with the perfect lighting!
the image is sharp with very nice colour and superb details
good framed as well
many thanks for the sharing

Bonjour Bev,
Très belle publication très bien composée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Great job. Your flower's photos are really good. I like it very much and waiting for more ;-)

Hello Beverley,

Indeed I have also photographed a white foxgloves, but mostly you see the purple version. I like them both. The white one is more fragile (in my opnion) I like the waterdrops on the flowers. They are so clear. Compo, POV and BG are good.
Nice frame.

Thanks for sharing. Nice evening and TFS BOB
