During week two of this year, I actually used at least three of my lenses, including the ultra-wide Sigma 10-20mm. On Friday, Fidal had arranged that we meet for a drink near Ogle, but before we went, he and Rosh suggested we go to the seawall nearby to get in a few shots 🙂 (we were joined by Savita and TJ, if you must know)
As it turned out, that was a pretty good idea, there was a lovely sky above and some unusual streaming clouds (probably from the jets passing), and I got down into the grass to get a low perspective shot.
While processing it I remembered a song that I probably hadn’t heard since I was much younger, I had come across it on an LP my father had, it was called “Grazing in the Grass” by Friends of Distinction; it was one of those 70s songs, and I didn’t understand the lyrics then, and I don’t quite understand them now (yes I went and listened to it again), but then, I probably need to be high on something for those lyrics to make sense to me. You can check the song out for yourself 🙂
As always, click on the image to see it in the Gallery.

I seriously doubt that we have all that many jets passing overhead at any one time in Guyana 🙂 However they got made, you certainly made the most out of it.
The theory was that it may have been one jet stream that the wind took and spread out like that 🙂
Nice and pleasing photo for me to look at to start my working day. You are showing your age when you know songs like, “grazing in the grass”. On the good side, you are looking good for your age 🙂
Thanks Cecil. I should have researched the song a bit more… it apparently was not a 70s song but late 60s, 1969 to be precise (at least the version by Friends of Distinction), so that was still a few years before my arrival into the world 🙂
Totally in love with this image!
It’s one of those “impacting” images that I don’t do too frequently 🙂
