The Miscanthus and the Big, Big Sky

Picking a photo for Gardening Gone Wild's Photo monthly contest was a challenge. The subject matter for September is ornamental grasses. I took photos of the grass leaves, the seed heads, and from different perspectives and finally settled on the first picture of the Miscanthus sinensis 'Zebrinus'. I liked the second picture of the seedheads because of the similar orientation of the seedheads.

I like the arcing blades of grass in front of the blue sky and the clouds in the background. What do you think? Does the cloud in the sky resemble a man with a beard?

Synchronized Swaying

The wind was blowing the seedheads back and forth. What I found interesting was the synchronicity of the grass seeds.
