How to join Green Thumb Sunday

While the boys were fishing along the edge of a river, I was exploring the plant life.

Not much growing alongside this moving water but I did find some grass that was leaning over a narrow band of sand on the riverbank.

These thin strands of green were dipping their fine ends into the water as a few bubbles drifted by.

The strip of sand went out into the water about three feet before it dropped off into the deep river.

Once again I used a polarizer to take the reflection off the water to make the sand visible below it.


  1. That is one FANTASTIC photo for green thumb sunday this week.

    My photos are shared. Hope you can stop by.

  2. Would you be willing to recommend a good beginners SLR camera that would grow with me and the best lenses to start?
    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

  3. I was looking for a digital. There are so many to choose from and my belief is that the best people to ask are those that use SLRs all the time personally and professionally - hence I come to you.
    I can be reached at mamafloATmamaflosatxDOTcom

    Thank you, I really appreciate your guidance.

  4. Lovely shot - I don't have much luck with polarisers - the thing I want to shoot is usually in the wrong direction for it to work!

  5. Wonderful photo. It looks so cool, which is what I need right now.

  6. Beautiful shot. I looked through some others in your gallery and you've got a really excellent eye for light, especially in nature. Well done :)

  7. Love the image Kathy, I really have to look into getting a polarizing filter for my camera, they seem to work pretty slick.

  8. After I read your explanation my first thought was, "What nice clear water." (I tend to notice things about water... he he.) If the water had not been so clear, the polarizer would not have made a difference -- but it was clear, and the polarizer provided us with a great view of this delicate grass. Well done.


  9. Ordinary moments captured nicely...
