“Wild Phlox”


Shot at Clifty Falls Park, there has been an abundance of wildflowers this year, especially abundant is the Wild Phlox a beautiful purple to light blue wildflower that grows in deep rich woodlands and gorges that dot our countryside.

They can grow in individual little clumps are in clusters as large as 20-30 plants, they grow to about 12 inches tall and their sweet fragrance will spread all around the forest they grow in. They are a great flower to photograph because of their saturated colors and their tendency to grow in open areas in the forest that are easy to photograph. They tend to bloom here in the Madison Indiana area around the middle to late April and they weather the elements well.

So if you ever out in the woods and want to photograph a neat little wildflower, give these a guys a shot you might be happy with the results.

    Very nice. They look like they are ready to spin around with the first breeze. I don’t remember seeing them around here but will be more aware now.

    Bernie, you did a great job on this one. Beautiful! It’s a flower we don’t have here, so I’ll just enjoy your photo!

    I’ve looked over this photograph at least six times and I think it is just breathtakingly lovely. I had wondered how you got such a stunning example of the perfect depth of focus. (Only so I can completely emulate it.) Brilliant!
