Yorkshire Fog After The Rain

Yorkshire Fog Holcus lanatus

I have always loved this grass which covers the local fields. It ripples like waves on a calm ocean when the wind blows through it.

  1. You are not alone. We have a lot of wild grasses that sway in the wind here on the Prairie. I absolutely love to watch them. Okay, I also take photographs… but I’m sure you knew that πŸ™‚

    1. I love wild grasses. There are so many different ones to enjoy but they are often overlooked. I need to pay more attention to them πŸ™‚

      Ahh … I had an idea you took photographs, too, Sumyanna πŸ˜‰


  2. Nice Pete! I’d frame that first image πŸ™‚ And by the way…thanks for the inspiration, should have my new Olympus macro lens next Tuesday evening.

      1. Thanks Pete! Yes I checked reviews and found a nice recommended lens. Now will be counting down the sleeps. In the meantime will be perusing your blog avidly 😊

    1. In the past I have found trying to isolate grasses ad then trying to identify them quite a challenge. There are indeed so many. Then you have your sedges and rushes, all beautiful and interesting in their own individual ways. I may do a project on them this summer, but like always, time is is such a factor πŸ™‚ Thank you, Jude. They are probably my no.1 favourite of the grasses because of that rosy pink πŸ™‚

  3. I love the various grasses also……for that very same reason. There are many used in the formal Landscaping along the river near my home and I love the way the wind blows one row one way and the others the opposite, making a sort of zig-zag effect. Can be hard to photograph though. Same with the dying sun catching each seed head and turning it into a field of golden lights.

    1. Beautifully scribed, Vicki πŸ™‚ They can be quite a challenge to photo, and yet just being amongst them as the wind blows, all moving around you, and listening to them whisper is really quite something.

  4. This grassy type of Yorkshire Fog I like, though I didn’t know it was called that. The other type, coming from Yorkshire, I’ve seen enough of this week, as early June has been so awful.

    1. Same here with the rain and dull weather. Made up for for the dry April and May, I think. I just hope it picks as I have a few days off work and want to get out! πŸ™‚
