Natural Landscapes: Dastardly devil’s club


These plants, which can grow to heights of six feet, are nasty to the touch, with prickles all over the stems.
That said, they can make for excellent photography subjects, such as in this forest scene on the slopes of Mount Revelstoke in the Canadian province of British Columbia. The spotlight-style illumination was certainly helpful and I used a polarizing filter to reduce glare on the leaves. Nikon D90, tripod.
