[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cottongrass is in fact not a grass at all, but a sedge. Common in the Arctic and many Northern regions, this sedge of the genus Eriophorum grows in acidic wetlands or peat bogs.

The photo of this particular inflorescence was taken in a wetland area near Aajuitsup Tasia, a large lake approximately 12km Northeast of Kangerlussuaq, Greenland.

Hi Jeff,

The sharp solitude of this cotton grass, is such a stark contrast to the soft rolling hills in the backround. Beautiful minimalistic composition. This sedge shot balances perfectly on the boundary of nature and art. Well done! TFS
