Fall aster

New England Asters finished blooming a few weeks back, a burst of color as the leaves started to turn. I usually prefer soft light for flowers, but for this view I used full late afternoon sun.

This is the pinkish version of the flower, they are often purple:

Taken at pretty high magnification with a wide aperture – and I reduced the saturation.
