Grass with a twist...
Posted By: heliphoto, 06-24-2009, 06:11 PM

This grass at a desert oasis was twisted into a spiral standing about two feet (.6m) high. I can only guess a dust devil came through and twisted it up. The cloud mirroring it in the background was just luck... Pretty cool.

K20D @ ISO 100, DA*16-50 @ 16mm, f/6.3, 1/250.

Very impressive shot! Very observant of you...most people can walk around below halos and nice clouds without notising them, and the see the appearant similarity in the grass twist and the cloud anvil is very good. Well processed also. I can see this as a great poster! And as an amateur photographer and atmospheric researcher with a degree in meteorology I apprechiate it from a dual perspective.
Thanks Douglas - as an aviator (and ski mountaineer), I tend to pay some attention to clouds.
