Being that I live in California, you can imagine I expected something a bit different. This reminds me of the grasses used for hay on my grandfather's ranch when I was a child. Have no idea what the grass was.. but it looked like this when is went to seed.

Nice shot.

The dark background really makes this one.

Beautiful image... Simple and striking. Weed or wheat?

I thought it looked like wheat also.
Nonetheless, very striking BandW composition.

I love it when the combination of lighting, exposure, focus and background make a subject POP without a hint of manipulation - either of the image or the viewer. Well done.

Very striking. I can feel them stuck to my socks as a kid.
