Hosta Leaves, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada 2011

June 3rd, 2011

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III__EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM__1/15 sec at f / 16__ISO 400

Last week, I was in the Toronto area with my family for a wedding.  I brought along my camera and a few lenses in case I found inspiration.  Staying at our  family’s home,  I took a short walk about their property on a drizzly day.  I am not sure if these plants are hosta, or maybe veratrum, but I know I loved the patterns.  Does anyone know the common and/or latin name?

    Hostas….so many fun ways to shoot those repetitive patterns. Hostas come in many colors too so to find a patch of closely planted hostas can make color images sing. Also striking in B&W.

    This is one of those images that is screaming for a black and white conversion. It is screaming to me, at least. I love your work–it is an inspiration. Thank you for sharing what you do and how you do it.

    I think the leaves belong to one of the Hosta or Plantain Lily family. Veratrum
    leaves are very grooved or pleated. Was there a flower stem or any flowers on
    the plant as this would help define which of the Hostas it is.

    I really like this shot, I too am interested in patterns of nature and how designs are repeated throughout the natural world. I am fortunate (or unfortunate in a way) that I am very myopic so I can ‘zoom’ into small things with no problem although do prefer to be properly sighted when using my macro lens!
