Wow! Beautiful shots. That grass looks like ‘Morning Light’ too. It is spotlighted wonderfully.
Thanks Tina! I was still in my pjyamas, but couldn’t miss the light… I think the grass may well be ‘Morning Light’, either that or ‘Kleine Fontäne’.
these are simply gorgeous shots : ) I am a huge grass fan and I am always fascinated by how they look in different degrees of light … plus the smokebush ? .. I have Royal Purple plus Golden Spirit and they are amazing with the colour changes .. but I love seeing this grass ! Great photos ! Joy : )
Hi Joy. Thank you! I love the grasses too, they add so much to the garden at this time of year.
Those grasses are amazing. Who needs colour?? B&W is great! And (as you will have noticed) Cotinus is one of my favourite plants too…
Hi Mark. I agree, the bleached grass heads look stunning in this kind of light. I noticed you love Cotinus ;-) Did you find yours coloured later this year? I wasn’t sure if in my case it was because it is in a pot now…
To be honest, the exact timings of colour-changes were not things I noticed before I took up photography, and as you know that was only in August. I’ll answer your question next year then…! Isn’t it convenient that all one’s photos have a date/time stamp on them?
I’ve enjoyed my first visit to your blog. Your photography is beautiful and I’ll be back to see more soon. Very inspirational indeed!
Hi Cat, thanks for stopping by! Having visitied your blog your lovely comment on the photos is doubly appreciated, you have pretty amazing skills there!
No words needed :)
I always think that I like the spring garden best, but autumn as been beautiful this year — as these pictures demonstrate so very effectively. My miscanthus is a bright spot these days, but the cotinus is shedding its leaves very quickly . . . only a few left now after all the winds.
Hi Bee. I’ve lost most of the leaves on my Magnolia now, its been so windy. Ah well, fleeting pleasures and all that!
Janet what beautiful photos again! Morning Light is maybe my favourite grass of all, though I love them all. They give such life to the garden with their movement and ability to change so much with the change in light. Christina
Hi Christina, thank you! I agree, I think if I could only have one grass I would find myself torn between ‘Morning Light’ and Hakonechloa macra, but I think the Miscanthus would win because of its grace and the many forms it takes over the season.
