Autumnal Indian Pipe

By now you must know how much I love indian pipe wildflowers and how even though my original project was for one season, I still shoot them almost every time I see them. Usually they bloom in June and sometimes spill over into July. But October? October?!


Braving the October chill

Yes, I did place one of those leaves back there, but not both. And they were right to hand. I’m not above a little manipulation to make the shot work better. Don’t you dig the pine needles though? Oh I love this one. It’s funny, I noticed an older one first; one that had already turned brown and then this one showed itself and boy did I go to work. So much fun.

  1. I’m a new follower of your photography and a lover of macro (and large format black and white). This is a very nice portrait. I have never seen this flower before…where was this taken, if I may ask…paula

    1. Hi Paula,
      Thanks for following my very sporadic blog. Macro and microscapes are near and dear to me, so you’ll probably get your fill. : ) This was shot in the Oaklands town forest in Exeter, NH. It and its sister preserve, the Henderson Swasey, straddle route 101 and have parking areas on route 85. You can actually access both from either trailhead as there is a tunnel under 101 connecting them. Maps are available if you google.
