Blue False Indigo

False Blue Indigo

Here's a somber image from the garden. This is Blue False Indigo or Baptisia australis. The flowers are beautiful in the summer when the plant explodes with delicate blue pea like blooms. In late fall it turns what looks like black, but it is really a beautiful deep indigo. The pigment is unmasked by migrating chlorophyll and displayed upon a decaying brown canvas. The color is deep and rich. This day the Lensbaby offered up a very sharp foreground leaf, adorned with a single droplet of water. The image was exposed using the f4 diaphragm magnet. This was taken at sunset on an overcast day at the same time this one was taken.
