[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This plant is Pennisetum Alopecuroides, or more commonly known as fountain grass. The arching medium green foliage forms a mound by mid-Summer, with light green spikes of bottlebrush-like inflorescences emering in early September, maturing to pink-purple-green and flowing in the breezes, then turning to tan, along with the foliage, as Autumn progresses, with the grains slowly shattering throughout Autumn and Winter.

I used my Canon SD300 to capture this photo, and just sharpened the image and did a little blending on some distractions in the BG. Hope you enjoy it!

Muy buena iluminación en la planta :D. Y nos muestras donde vive esta planta, pero yo hubiera cerrado un poco más el diafragma para difuminar el fondo ;). Un gran trabajo el tuyo compañero :). Un saludo desde Sant Joan Despi (Spain)
