Last week I discovered a new place for an off-road run in the hills very close to my home. This week I went back with a backpack of photographic gear. Needless to say the run was pretty slow and I am suffering today for trying to run up the hills with the backpack. Here are couple of shots from the run/walk/stumble.

I love the deep green background and the composition in the second one.
I also like the peace feeling of the last one.

Very nice series ... I love the black and white image the best - two grasses in love ....

Put me down for that first one too. Nicely done.

Sorry, but for me no fave, as they are all outstanding.

#1 I would def. frame this, and b&w does this such justice that no colour could ever do.
#2 The clarity of the main subject, along with the smooth background, make this.
#3 The comp, the depth, the detail. Just a wonderfully balanced photo that brings the viewer "right into" it. Lovely.

I like the black and white best, too. Hopefully you aren't feeling as sore by now.
