Bowing to the light by Rhoufi

I have no idea what they are, but they are very elegant and very respectful and that is so rare.

    They are indeed very elegant!

  • Thanks Mel, I used to walk straight passed things like this, but now with my camera I see the beauty more often. It was the different colours that attracted my eye.

    they’re pure sweetness
    we could nearly see them starting to fly….

  • Merci, they do look like birds in flight at great distance, wings like an open book, gracefully rising and falling on the wind :-)))

    These are so lovely, and you are right about the elegance and respect. To me there is also something tender and humble about them. I photographed some similar grasses when I was down in Denmark (WA) in the holidays.

  • Thank you Evelyn. So strange to use human words to describe non sentient things, but that’s what we see, the metaphor. So human, metaphor!

    Well done Rhoufi, love their ‘muted’ tones. cheers, j.

  • Thank you Jannina. You’re right it’s the different colours that make this interesting. Why they are all different I don’t know, but it drew my eye.

    Beautiful macro work – and congrats on your feature. I love the ‘soft’ features here….

  • Thank you Mary Lynn. No macro lens just my beloved, trusty 70mm LTD prime lens. I can’t seem to make myself take this lens off, it’s my trusted friend :-)))

  • Thank you Kay. It was one of those images you don’t think will be any good until you process it and find a little jewel amongst the rubbish.
