I love this plant, especially when it is swaying in the wind. So it's called pampas grass? Thanks, now I know.

Grass is so beautiful in all of its many shapes and forms. This is a particularly beautiful capture of pampas grass.

Fluffy, puffy, ornamental grasses!

I love pampas at this time of the year it is so silky and silvery swaying in the wind.

I like Pampas Grass if in the right landscape. On the coast I have seen some with the pink fronds and that one is very invasive. MB

Hope this isn't a duplicate comment. The grass looks so beautiful against the blue sky. Bravo.

Oh yes, we have this beautiful plant too. I've been noticing it lately and have been thinking about how to photograph it. You've done a lovely job here capturing the silky softness and the glow of light at the tips and fringes.

It's a beautiful shot. I love the blue sky!

Jarart said...

Beautiful! We have them here too and I like to see them all fluffy like yours in this shot.

This image is so beautiful and real that it looks like it was taken in a studio... I know this isn't the case and I obviously intended it as a compliment! Bravo!

JM, you captured this silky grass quite well. They do look like feather dusters.

I love photos of breeze on grass but pampas grass takes it to another level altogether. I especially like the silky effect you have captured.

I love the angle. Makes me feel like amazed butterfly in enchanted forest..
I was not blogging past week and now get the pleasure of your posts "all at once". Which is great opportunity to see strong pro and strong individuality
