goldenrod, gone to seed

Oldenrod

Some will find it dull and dreary, but I really enjoy this one.

Probably, this is partly because the sense of scale is somewhat indefinite. The out-of-focus foreground and background contribute to this, as does the lack of a larger context. It is not hard to imagine these as great, graceful conifers, viewed from a high perch in a mountain wilderness–perhaps in some exotic or alien world.
