Natural landscapes: The glow of green
FALSE HELLEBORE, WATERTON LAKES NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
These luxurious plants, which seem quite out of place in the Canadian Rockies, were all over the place during my hike around Cameron Lake in this park, which is in the deep southwest corner of Alberta. Also known as corn lillies, the strong green, strong lines and rich lighting immediately set my mind to capturing abstract compositions. This one was made with my Nikon D90 on a tripod and using a 70-300 mm. zoom lens.
False hellebores are extremely toxic and according to Wikipedia, farmers with livestock consider them a pest plant.
