Marram grass is the lifeblood of sand dunes as it traps the sand and stops it being blown away by the wind. A view of this tough plant and its beautiful textures under blue skies, on the dunes at East Head in West Wittering, West Sussex, England.

Happy new year to you.
This simplistic landscape scene you have captured is super, I can hear the grasses rustling in the wind and that glorious sun out in full, see you have taken this in Feb. but looks like a summers day. Great textures and mood.

wow! Beautiful frame here Brian. The textures created by the long grasses are superb. Nicely spotted and finely presented with the contrasting blue sky at top. Tfs.

A beautifully simple composition. The strong textures in the foreground with the sharp transition at the grass tops to the wispy cloud in the blue sky helps to provide a very strong sense of depth to the image. Well captured.

Hi Brian - I love this. In fact I have a similar shot which I may just post! I find shots like this really highlight small aspects of the coast that often go unnoticed. Good textures in the grass and sand and a lovely sky as a backcloth. Simple and effective. Warm regards rosemary

A fine photographic study, beautifully lit and with superb colour contrasts. Excellent rendering othis marvellous textures to be observed in the grass.

cette réalisation est superbe, au premier plan ces hautes herbes et ce ciel au dessus, (que j'aurai rogné un peu mais cela n'engage que moi) une belle luminosité et couleurs et le format vertical sied bien à cette présentation

Simple, classic, clear and graphic. Just as I like 'em!

you have taken full advantage of a lovely light on the grasses and a lovely BG sky to produce a shot full of textures and interest.
A simple shot that works very well.
All the best Les.

So simple and so beautiful. We don't have this kind of grass on the beach so it is something exotic to me :D.
Have a fine evening.

The pattern and the colours of these straws form a very pleasant part of this simple, but elegant picture. The blue sky above is also in a perfect colour harmony with the sandy part of the picture.

Technically perfect photo with one dominant subject and excellent contrast between colors of the grass and the sky, well done

Nice color blend of the blue sky with the golden grass
excellent color saturation
A simple beautiful shot

This picture is very neat in composition. It's not kind of grey sky when people think of UK in winter.
Speaking of winter, we are hitting by polar vortex on East Coast of US right now, miserable cold.
Happy New Year, it's still not too late.

la natura selvaggia del Sussex è ben condensata in questo scatto che si fa notare per soggetto, colori e nitidezza.
Unb'altra eccellente cattura della natura della Gran Bretagna.
Ciao e buona notte

I take this opportunity to commend this, but previous your picture too. Simple, but beautiful!

Un cadrage en 50/50 apparemment simple mais terriblement efficace. Belle photo!
