I was walking along the edge of a marsh just after dawn and I saw this tangle of thick grasses. I was immediately reminded of Apple’s desktop wallpaper image of grass and Picasso’s dictum that good artist’s borrow but great artists steal. I am no great artist but I decided to try and go for something similar with my own interpretation. The grass that I was looking at seemed to cut and slice across the image and the form, line and shape of the image was more compelling to me when I took a wider shot than the one that Apple used. Using a wider point of view also meant that we did not get as direct a view of the dew drops on the grass; instead the mist and dew drops become a soft counterpoint to the slicing horizontal lines of the grass. The wider image also allowed me to include the transition from the dark regions below to the lightening sky at the top and I believe this improves my image. The colour seemed to be getting in the way of, instead of complementing the image so I converted to black and white and was much happier with the result.
