I call those bird roller coasters .. I have a shot of these little sparrows holding on to some of these for dear life in a high wind ... your BW has inspired me ..

Beautiful in its simplicity. Mono was the perfect choice for this one.

Mariz said...

I agree with Robin, this is perfect in B&W. Very nice!

I'm with the gang here: monochrome was a great call here, as the power lies in the composition - the simple lines of the horizon broken by the wonderfully angled grass.

I recall standing behind a similar scene the last time I was at the beach in Florida. No way I've ever captured it as artfully as you have - you stripped it down to its elemental basics. Masterful.
