Dandelion Ring

Dandelion Ring, originally uploaded by escher1.

Continuing the dandelion theme this is another Andy Goldsworthy design I wanted to emulate. To achieve the quality of his original is very hard. Just getting the ring right was very difficult and I didn't quite get there and finding a enough density of flowers equally taxing. In the end I found a spot on teh YMCA playing field in Lytham. I had to pick quite a lot of flowers to make the circle and even more to dot around the ring to try and make it look natural. The problme was the were growing at different heights and angles so I had to pick some of the ones that were actually growing in the shot and replace them with picked ones.
