Big Rock Candy Mountains

I’ve photographed this bromeliad flower (it is a Guzmania hybrid) over the last couple of days at Berkeley Hort. The people at Berkeley Hort are very nice to me when I am photographing: thanks, Berkeley Hort!

The pattern of the photo above reminds me of an abstract landscape like might be used to illustrate Big Rock Candy Mountains. (Click here for the words and lyrics.) The song was part of the soundtrack for the film O Brother Where Art Thou.

This photo, taken with my toy Pentax Option WPi, gives you a better idea of the context of this fantastic flower:

Here’s another view somewhere between the extreme close-up of the first photo, but not as broad as the second:
