Macricostas Preserve, Washington, Connecticut.
Tom and I took a quick walk around an old corn field and there were a few spots that were frozen enough to show interest. The snow was very light so we could see through to the grass and the ice, grass, and snow made a great pattern.
I had to crop this to get some leaves out of it that I thought might be interesting but in the end, weren’t.
This is a fantastic process video on building a frame and covering it with grass to build a hut.
There are many more at the Primitive Technology site and for those who prefer, he has a Primitive Technology YouTube Channel.

After being sick for a while I started hiking again by walking around this large grass-covered field at Macricostas Preserve, right down the road from us.
I’ve been hiking around this field for almost 20 years now (it used to be a corn field) and know it well. In a few places on the perimeter you can shoot it in a way that makes it look much larger than it actually is and this is one of those places.
First time I’ve stopped the X70 down to f/16 and I like the results.
My flickr contact Olivier Stevens posted this great image of what looks like blowing grass but who knows? Don’t know where it was taken either or by what camera.
I tend not to post images with watermarks but his “chop” actually looks nice with this image. Would make a very nice print.
Flickr member Cheryl Rose took this amazing macro shot of frost on blades of grass with her Canon T2i and Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens.
Japanese Garden, Van Nuys, California. We returned to this great garden today and there was plenty of bird activity but what caught my eye was the ginkgo leaves on an unusually plush plot of grass.
Washington, Connecticut, Macricostas Preserve. This is one stalk of grass from this field. I was on the edge of the field today attempting to take pictures of bugs and thought the grass looked just as good.
