I have been after getting a decent shot of this cotton grass backlit by a low sun for a while now. This is something like what I wanted, although I'm not entirely happy with this, but it's getting there.

Not my usual, so we'll see how this gets on.

RAW ISO 100
1/400th @ f5.6

This is also something I have wanted to get for a while Martin, but never had the right conditions at the right time. You've done very well to get this.... A well controlled exposure. I would be very happy with this.

Steve!

The backlighting and the tone give it a pleasant and relaxing feel. Large looks magical.

perfect timing, heres your 30th.

It's funny how we all want to capture very similar things, I had been after some cotton grass like this in the evening sun but never got the conditions either - It's a photo to be very proud of martin!
