[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I can't tell you exactly why I took this photo... A very good friend and I saw these grasses at the same time. We both really liked the lighting/coloring and the overall effect. Both of us are of a like mind when it comes to spiritual matters... he is a pastor and a former college room mate, where we met. I would like to think that this image spoke, in some way, to both our spirits.

“While there is perhaps a province
in which the photograph can tell us nothing more
than what we see with our own eyes,
there is another in which it proves to us
how little our eyes permit us to see.”
- Dorothea Lange

Taken hand-held, auto everything, 12X zoom lens somewhat extended, rather bright sunny day with a very subtle breeze... some PP work.

Hi Larry.I see subtle light and a mellow palette of colour and the texture of the seed heads of grass.I see symmetry of natural design photoed sharp and clear by your hand and mostly I see you took the time to enjoy a simple subject and share it with us.I even photo grasses from time to time as there is something about grass that is very enjoyable to my own eyes as well.Thanks for sharing what many would not consider photoing but with all the variety grass comes in,you could be years trying to get it all.

Hello Larry,
Magnificent how these fine grasses are holding the light..most beautiful. Like you I like to make pictures against the light to show how light can enhance the beauty of every creature. It's like being blessed by our Creator.
Thanks and kind regards
