15.03.10 - Little Rainbows
I've been searching for inspiration for the DGrin mega Challenge, and thought that a sunset trip to Fiskerton Fen might do the trick. It certainly inspired and got my creative juices flowing, the light was almost perfect, but now I have too many ideas and don't know what to chose!
This is a seed head on a reed, and if you look closely you'll see lots of tiny rainbows as the microscopic filaments act as prisms on the low angled light. The effect of this on the whole area of reeds swaying in the breeze was mesmeric, I've never seen anything like it before. They were very difficult to photograph though, as the auto focus struggled to lock on to the moving targets, and I had to resort to manual focus on many occasions.
There are some more shots from the walk, including another spectacular sunset, here;
