As I haven’t been able to get out for weeks with my camera, I was browsing through some old images that I thought were useless and just noticed the top of a bank of beach grass and wondered how it would look cropped and treated with a watercolour filter, so here it is.

Taken with my Nikon D700, 105mm macro lens, ISO1000 set to b&w, f/7.1, 1/250sec, +.3 step, Indian Ocean south of Hillary’s, Perth, Western Australia, cropped and given watercolour filter.
