Ox-eye daisies grow tall in a mountain meadow above an alpine valley, with a hazy mountain in the distance.
Captured from the slopes of Crowsnest Mountain, in the Crowsnest Pass region of the Canadian Rockies, in Alberta, Canada. The distant mountain is Mount Tecumseh, with the Deadman Pass on it’s right, meaning from this vantage we are looking across the Continental Divide. All waters from our vantage point eventually flows east to Hudson’s Bay and the Arctic Ocean, while all water from the far slopes of Mt. Tecumseh flow west to the Pacific Ocean.
Taken with a Canon Rebel XSi using an 18-55mm lens @ 29mm, f/10.0, 1/160 sec., ISO 100. No post-processing.
The Ox-eye Daisy (Leucanthemun vulgare) has may names, it also known as Dog Daisy, Field Daisy, Marguerite, Moon Penny, Poor-land Flower, Poverty Weed, White Daisy, White-weed.
In Alberta, this flower is considered to be a noxious weed, having been introduced from Eurasia, and displacing many native species of wildflowers.
