    1. Thanks! One day I was snapping photos of Switchgrass and realized how many layers you can see in a patch of it.

  2. Yes i 2nd JM, that is creative. And i guess we have that grass here too. I need to learn using the video in my camera or in my phone. My camera even has a wifi but haven't explored it yet, too busy to learn.

    1. Thanks! This is simply a series of photos, shooting into the same patch of Switchgrass at the same location, and adjusting the focus to see the different layers. Then I loaded them into the video program, added some transitions, and then some public domain music. It's fun, but it does take a little time.

    1. Glad you liked it. It's a public domain performance of Bach's Book I: Prelude and Fugue #8 in E Flat Minor.

    1. Thanks. One day I was snapping photos of the seemingly endless layers of Switchgrass, and it seemed a natural for a video vignette. :)

  6. Lovely! I find it so hard to photograph switchgrass, but it's one of my favorites.

    1. I agree: It's a hard subject. But such a beauty.

  7. Beautiful - I'm compiling photos of plants that I want to incorporate into the ornamental borders (the folder is getting rather full!) and switchgrass is on the list. I saw a lovely one ('Cheyenne Sky') at the Botanical Gardens this weekend...and I'm finally learning to take a photo of both the plant AND the variety label :)

    1. Good idea! This grass is growing amid a lovely combination of other prairie plants in a pretty little pollinator garden near the lake. The light near the lake adds magical glimmers to the grass.

    1. Thanks, Carla. I enjoy making little movies. They take a little time, but it's fun to see how the images, animation, and audio come together. :)

    1. Thanks for the encouragement, Ricki. I was out at a neat little garden and noticed how there were so many layers of grass ... and by changing the focus on the camera by tiny increments, I was always seeing something new. The video was an attempt to convey this.

  11. They kind of look like impressionist paintings. Artistic!

    1. Mother Nature is an amazing artist. She inspired me to combine some of her images into a little video with some music. :)
