Daisy After The Storm

Lone Daisy, French Alps

I don’t often go for black and white with my landscape shots, but it seemed like the perfect way to highlight this daisy standing tall in the long grass near La Chaîne du Bargy in the French Alps. After taking shelter from a stormy shower passing through the valley I ventured out toward the woodland before coming across this beautiful scene.

I noticed a few daisies dotted around so started searching for a decent composition with one in the foreground. Fortunately I found this spot, and I took a few handheld shots at different apertures to make sure I came away with something acceptable.

I was slightly disappointed that the weather turned on me. I’d started out on a longer hike to Lac Benit but decided not to continue after the thunder started rolling in. Better safe than sorry! But after the worst of the weather had passed the cloudy skies were so dreamy, I didn’t stay disappointed for too long.

      Thanks Sam 🙂 I was fortunate to have some interesting weather on the day, and the daisies were great! I might also post the colour shot since it’s interesting to compare the two.

      Thank you! I’m glad you liked the black and white. I always struggle to make that choice to remove the colour, but it just seemed to work better for this shot.

    Storm light is usually quite breathtaking, even if only for a few moments before everything breaks loose and you are running for cover!

    Virtual hugs,
