WOW! That's a winner! Gorgeous! The light... palette... textures... Fabulous...Good Luck!
Wow, I love the colors! I took some photos of the grass we have, but didn't like how any of them turned out, so I'm not going to enter this time.
this is very pretty...i love the sunlit grasses.
What a beautiful picture! I love the lighting and the color in it. Good luck!!
Oh I love the composition with those little flowers in the background. Great!
That's absolutely gorgeous, Phillip!
Perfect lighting and capture Phillip! Thank you for my place on your blog roll.
Oooohhh... so beautiful. And I'm not surprised Randy and Jamie were growing it. Their garden is delightful.Meems @ Hoe and Shovel
Outstanding! My fingers are crossed.
Gorgeous photo -- the colors are so vivid.
Bee you tea full. So much depth and movement.
Great photo! Good luck in the contest! Those colors are awesome!
Beautiful color and lighting, Phillip. It's a lovely image.
That's an excellent shot Phillip.
Great capture, Phillip
A beautiful photo and I love the layering of color. gail
Very nice photo! I like the reddish hues and the lighting.
Wow, what an awesome photo; I love the colors! I just took some photos this weekend of native prairie grasses, but don't know if they qualify as "ornamental."
I agree with the others - perfect lighting! The color combination is great. I am very fond of purple fountain grass (have 4 in different containers and 4 out in the garden). Apparently, the Monarch cats like to use it for metamorphosis, too! Good luck with your gorgeous entry!Cameron
Absolutely beautiful. The colors are stunning. I'm making a note of what to plant with what to get this effect in my garden;)Marnie
Your photo is stunning! Good luck....
A spectacular entry! Those sun-kissed grasses are stunning.
It's perfect, Phillip, a winner for sure! Frances
Wow, what a beautiful shot! I love the way the sun is glowing in the background.
I would like grasses more if I could grow a grass with this much color. A beautiful photo Phillip. Good luck.
GORGEOUS! The lighting, especially, is phenomenal.
Phillip,Thank you for the beautiful scene you captured from our garden. You truly are a wonderful photographer! ;0) Good luck in the photo contest, I'm sure you're a shoo-in for a win!--Jamie
Wild! Such amazing colors, texture and composition. Praise to Randy and Jamie and to you for capturing it. Good luck! It is already a winner to me.
What amazing colors! Phillip, your photography skills are incredable. One question, Can you make my flower beds look that good? Bill
The detail in the grass structure is wonderful, and the blues & yellows really make the 'rubrum' pop, Phillip! Only one question - why didn't I plant this grass? It's so pretty. Good luck with the contest- Annie at the Transplantable Rose
