Sepp Hackhofer - Marsh Cinquefoil


The Marsh Cinquefoil (Comarum palustre) or (Potentilla palustris) is growing in marshland. It flowers in may or june with dark red Blooms (Blutauge = blood-eye). Already in August, when nights are getting cooler it´s leaves are slowly starting to Change colour. That´s the time when I look every year for it, trying to find the perfect composition on this fantastic subject. I especially like it in the morning, when dewdrops decorate the fine leaves. But it is difficult to find a quiet composition in a chaos of plants.

Location: Krahmoos, St. Lorenzen, Pustertal, Südtirol, Italy

    The chaos delights us with the complexity of abundance! Colours and forms dancing.
