In The Breeze

On my stroll in Palmyra Nature Cove last Saturday. I found myself looking up at a tall strand of grass, blowing in the January breeze. I’ve photographed these plants before, but any time I encounter a new angle I’m drawn to capture their image once again. There’s something about the fragile strength of these strands which fascinates me. I could pinch on of these stalks and it would crumble fall, but they are able to stand in strong winds and sway back and forth without snapping. I suppose it’s a metaphor for how I’d like to live my life — fragile, and yet strong enough to give and sway while remaining rooted.

The blue January sky also made the perfect backdrop for Winter’s muted colors.
