Well done - the light reflecting off the grain, great texture and the blue of the lake provides a great backdrop.

I like the colours. Interesting grass (grain) heads. By the size of them I suspect they could have been harvested and groiund into flour at some time in the past.

Native Indians knew how to harvest these wild grains and grind them into flour. They baked "BANNIQUE" (the British understood "bannock"), a rough, heavy type of bread.
