Beautifully composed and captured Steve! #730328

Wonderful composition Steve. I really like the way the bent grass in the forground contrast with such a gorgeous sky. Was this taken from your cabin as well? #4745907

Steve M. Harrington 9/4/2007 12:53:06 PM

Thanks, Jeff and Dave. Yeah, these are the dunes in front of our cottage. Lake Huron is just beyond.

AHhh, sweet vacations!! BEAUTIFUL image! Love your blue, blue sky with it's hint of an oncoming glorious sunset and the swaying silhouetted grasses! A very COMFORTABLE & relaxing view!! Bet it was HARD to come back home!! #4746899

Mitch Spence level-deluxe 9/4/2007 5:04:53 PM

There is a great sense of movement in the bending of the plants. The yellow of the sky behind them enhances this sense. Quite lovely. #4746972

Steve M. Harrington level-deluxe 9/4/2007 5:34:15 PM

What nice comments, Dianna and Mitch. I wasn't sure about this image. You guys have made my day! :)
In some ways, it was harder to stay, Dianna. It's good to be home.

Nikki McDonald level-deluxe 9/4/2007 7:51:40 PM

Mitch, Dianna, David and others have said it so nicely. I, too, love that yellow behind and silhouetting the grasses. The fine delicate patterns of the grass heads and the wispy clouds are nicely anchored by the solid dark ground and deep blue sky. This is a lovely photo, Steve, #4747618

Steve M. Harrington level-deluxe 9/4/2007 7:59:54 PM

Thank you so much, Nikki. To be honest, this image was an afterthought. I was mainly focusing on shooting straight into the sun at sunset when I looked left and thought, "Hmm, just might have an image here." :)
