Even the cold, gloomy, short days of winter offer something to photograph. Umbellifers in the summer produce hundreds of tiny, white flowers and are found all along the coast here. They die off in the autumn after producing their seed heads and make a challenging subject to photograph successfully. I really like the way the plants decay, slowly losing their twigs and stalks leaving behind a memory of what once was and what will soon again be.

    They do look interesting, but how do you say their name, is it um-bil-ifers or umbel-ifers?

      Looking at the internet, however you like! I have changed them to say Umbellifers, with a double L to match the Latin spelling of Umbelliferae. Thanks for spotting that.
