Gardening Gone Wild Photo Competition

061206_0403-1

It is late afternoon on December 12th at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden. The sun is low in the sky and it catches the deergrass (Muhlenbergia rigens) in the foreground, while the grasses behind have fallen into shadow. I can feel, smell, hear and see the peacefulness of the garden after a long day's work.

This is my entry for the Gardening Gone Wild's September Picture This photo competition. The other pictures that I was considering can be seen in the slide show on my website.

That's beautiful! I like the way the grass stands out from the background.

Really nice. As MMD says, the way they stand out from the blue background is great.

Wow - that's a great dramatic shot with the two grasses layering one in front of the other!

Barbara,
Thank you for visiting my blog. I love your wonderful entry for GGW. The golden yellow color grass looks like fireworks.
