Snake's head at sunrise

11/04/2021
Snake's head fritillaries are a nationally rare plant and 80% of Britain's wild population grows in a single meadow at Cricklade in Wiltshire. I photographed this one at sunrise using a 16mm wide angle lens, with my camera pressed to the ground. Five bracketed exposures have enabled me to capture the full dynamic range from the shady grass to the bright sun, a range in brightness of around 19 stops.
