Trench Wood 2

Some sort of grassy thing. I looked in my old copy of Keble Martin and I still don't know what it is

Bill Phillips: I must admit I gave up quite quickly Peter grin

"Grassy thing" seems entirely apt and adequate, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Sad to think I did Botany at school

a grass family holding well together in good and bad times!
Bill Phillips: In sickness and in health
Quiveringly aesthetic

Backlit tweeness! I think your spelling of Keeble isn't quite rite...
Bill Phillips: Should be one B....shows how old it is

Never mind what it is, you have made a fine photograph out of it. A coming together in isolation.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Mike.

I hate this, it is far too good. Can't we have the usual rubbish back.
Bill Phillips: I have to post the occasional decent picture to justify buying a proper camera
Not bad for you Bill.
Bill Phillips: Damned with faint praise....oh well I'll just have to come to Blackpool for some lessons..............
Most grasses are as fascinating as difficult to ascertain, unless you get down to the macro detail. I dedicate time to it as pictures arise & my feeling is the more you dedicate the less you know. smile A nice shot too Bill! (& a thank you fr yr words at Ricardo's!!)
Bill Phillips: Indeed they do all look superficially the same and this picture was taken from some distance!
You have heard the term, 'tender grasses'. This is how that phrase came about. It is a beautiful shot.
Bill Phillips: I have heard the song whispering grass by the Inkspots Mary grin
Love the soft tone and how beautifully the grassy things are lit. Almost looks like they have their heads together, sharing secrets. Nicely done, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Whispering grass like in the song Beverly
'Kissing grass' Bill
Bill Phillips: They look very cosy don't they? grin

"Some sort of grassy thing" sums this up quite nicely. It's about mt level of knowledge. Isn't Keble Martin a village in Devon? Oh..no.. that's Coombe Martin.
Bill Phillips: It is a very good book which was much admired when I did A level Botany. To this day I really don't know why I did Botany or any other science, other than it was fashionable in the 60s.
Doesn't matter quite what type it is as long as you can get lovely back lighting on it like this.
Bill Phillips: A rare day of sunshine when I was actually able to get out with the camera!
Whatever it is, it looks beautiful here! Great light and DOF, Bill smile
Bill Phillips: It is rather nice. Actually grasses are generally rather nice

A lovely grass, and none the worse for its anonymity
Bill Phillips: It doesn't know it has a name
Beautiful and elegant Bill!
Bill Phillips: I know I am but what do you think of the Grass?
Beautifully caught in the light Bill.
Bill Phillips: A rare day of sunshine Fred
Nicely isolated, Bill. Is that some kind of bug crawling on the right stalk?
Bill Phillips: It could be I suppose, or it might be a bit of flotsam

I did my best to find out its name, Bill - but, sorry!
Bill Phillips: Then I shall call it Arthur
i like your presentation of it and the lack of a name does not subtract much from it, for me at least
