Bothriochloa laguroides ssp torreyana – Silver Bluestem

This not an attempt to create an artistic effect with photography – this is the result of a grossly overexposed photograph which one tried to recover or save using the “Enhance” menu in Photoshop Elements. On the other hand, it does appear somewhat like a watercolor filter effect. The Silver Bluestem grasses are blooming these days, and their distinctive seedheads are a distracting sight as one drives along the highways and byways. And with so many options available on a digital camera, it doesn’t cost too much to experiment with exposures and timings.
