ohhh, I love this! I know how hard it was to nail the focus on this as grasses are one of my favourite subjects. Really well done and artistically composed.

well done, I like these types of shots, good angle to get it all in focus & isolate it against the background
cheers

I had some luck with the light behind and the dark pool in front.

Thanks Tess. Fortunately all the bits were in pretty much the same plane and the wind was not blowing. I look at your work and marvel at how you pull the elements together. Thanks for the inspiration.

Simple is good, I appreciate your comment

Thank you to all who passed comment on this. Everyone hit on the simplicity of the result and rightly so as this was the aim. But a complex set of conditions all came together to create it. One head of grass alone in a paddock of millions, The sun and atmosphere conspired to put the late afternoon light behind and a dark still pool in front, with no wind to speak of. All by chance. I could walk through there a million times and never come across that set of circumstances again. The opportunity to witness and sometimes capture the randomness of nature, is the pleasure I get out of photography.
