Golden Delights

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 4 September 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

King Tut is an annual ornamental grass and a member of the same papyrus family of plants from which the ancient Egyptians made paper. Some papyrus plants grow up to 15 feet tall, but the King Tut cultivar is a dwarf variety that reaches 4 or 5 feet in height. Large pendulous heads with medium-green leafy rays adorn the sturdy stems, and green-brown flower clusters appear during the summer. Eventually, the flowers produce nut-like fruits.

Sorry Steve, without a defined point of focus, I find this image to be confused (but I think I understand what you were trying to achieve with the out of focus water drops).

The plant catches those droplets in a pretty manner. Excellent shot of the sparkling light.

Wonderful visual effect of these sparkling dots of light. They contrast with the beautiful shades of green and the dark background.
