Craspedia, or drumsticks as they are also called, belong to the daisy family. When I spotted these, I saw a perfect opportunity to create an image with good depth of field and eye-catching.
The goal was to take a picture of something that in itself does not look very interesting - in fact, you would probably get a shock if you just stood next to it - and try to get as much out of the subject as possible. It’s always motivating to set oneself those kinds of challenges, and I’m pretty happy with how this picture ended up being.
The colors of the drumsticks in the foreground stand in stark contrast to the dark background, and the result is a poster that you just look at once more.
