Windswept grass and fence

The tough grass by a beach in Kerry grows thick on this hill, bounded by a wire fence to keep curious people like myself at bay!


This is an experiment for me. I thought the b/w treatment would work well as the image is full of texture, lines and shadow. What do you think? Another similar one to follow tomorrow.

    It does indeed work well, Donncha. I love the texture of the grass, battered down but still soft and silky looking.

    Thanks Pete! Nice to get a positive response! I feel the same way about it, but I wish I could have done something more with the sky! There's a colour pic taken in the same location with a lovely little cloud in the sky. Hopefully I'll post that during the week!
