Natural landscapes: Marsh marigolds


May is a fabulous month for these wonderful wildflowers, which proliferate in wet, swampy places. Greenwood is a favourite place for my wife & I; when we lived in the Greater Toronto Area, we liked to walk and pray here. The effect you see in this picture comes from zooming in & out my lens during a long exposure. The trick is to try it several times at different exposure times to achieve an attractive result. Nikon D50, tripod, polarizing filter.
