Ellen Driesse Profile picture Heracleum mantegazzianum, commonly known as giant hogweed, cartwheel-flower, giant cow parsnip, hogsbane or giant cow parsley, is a plant in the family Apiaceae. In New Zealand, it is also sometimes called wild parsnip, or wild rhubarb. It typically grows to heights of 2?5.5 m (6 ft 7 in?18 ft 1 in). Superficially, it resembles common hogweed (Heracleum sphondylium), Heracleum sosnowskyi, or garden angelica (Angelica archangelica). It is phototoxic and considered to be a noxious weed in many jurisdictions. Giant hogweed is native to the Caucasus region and Central Asia. It was introduced to Britain as an ornamental plant in the 19th century, and it has also spread to many other parts of Europe, the United States, and Canada.

The sap of giant hogweed causes phytophotodermatitis in humans, resulting in blisters and long-lasting scars. These serious reactions are due to the furocoumarin derivatives in the leaves, roots, stems, flowers, and seeds of the plant.

Ellen Driesse-Pladdet, born and raised in beautiful Zeeuws-Vlaanderen close to the beach and dunes, grew up in the middle of the nature of Zeeland's countryside. A nature lover who enjoys everything Mother Nature has to offer and treats it with respect.
I've been photographing since I could hold a camera, first analogue, now digital for about the last 25 years, which has only strengthened my passion for photography.
I often go out, for day and dew, when the light is at its most beautiful you can find me in nature to capture atmospheric images.
The silence and tranquillity appeals to me enormously, which is often reflected in my work.
My interest in photography is very broad, architecture also appeals to me, puzzling with lines and surfaces.
But also here I try to keep peace in my images as well as in all other categories.
You could summarize the style of my work in a few keywords, tranquillity, atmosphere, austere, balanced and subdued...On my website https://www.photophila.nl and at https://www.facebook.com/ellen.driessepladdet you can view my extensive collection. If there is just the picture you would like to have on the wall, this can be arranged for you. Send a message to e.pladdet@zeelandnet.nl and indicate your preference, and it will be put in the webshop for you as soon as possible. Thank you all very much for your purchase and I hope you enjoy my work...!
