Pass the Pampas !

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Pampas grass was an unusual subject to find blowing in the breeze up here on the high ground above Grosmont..The curvature of the road, old stone wall and distant back-drop really appealed to me!

Super photo, Jim. Y*. That Pampas grass is always tempting to photo but, unlike here, always disappointing in my case!

Best wishes, Brian.

frederique35~~~Merci beaucoup pour votre commentaire intéressant et à l'évaluation généreuse Fred l'* Y signifie beaucoup pour moi;) Il n'est pas clair comment le village de Grosmont (Grande Motte) a obtenu son nom .. Le canton a augmenté parallèlement un développement industriel de la production de fer et un four à briques énormes, aujourd'hui disparu .. Il est probable que le grand monticule appelé les tas de déblais de proximité fer-pierre fonctionnement!

Theolfa~~~It's good to see you in these parts, your thoughtful comments are such a pleasure to read You saw what I saw too..If only you could have heard the harmonious sounds of this English country-side and smelled the aroma of fresh cut lush green meadow grass and felt the scent laden air on your fair skin...I guess you'll be thinking about home just now! Warm Yorkshire hugs sent your way my friend :)

pistek~~~Yes, well I'm glad you like the photo Fiala :) It is also one of my favourites too!

brian01~~~~I'll get to the end of this outstanding and unanswered mail Brian if it's the last thing I do...I hate pasting and copying responses..Much better to reply on a personal level with feeling and integrity as you do yourself! Never underestimate your ability to take good photos Brian I would strongly disagree with you! As for the Y*, that's a fine compliment and I'm flattered!
