This is a mediocre shot of what I think is a Bluestem goldenrod (solidago caesia) growing near Farmington, PA. Like a troll, this was growing almost beneath a little foot bridge. Notice the long leaves and how the flowers on this goldenrod are growing in bunches along the stem.
This second shot is of a bunch of New England Asters (Aster novae-angliae), not that I've done anything to help you in identifying these.
Snap Art was used to give these an Impasto-style Impressionist appearance. The rendering process left my computer feeling profoundly depressed. It's thinking of cutting off one of its speakers and sending it to the pretty little laptop across the street.
