    • Thanks, Alan. I take it then that this photograph isn’t too Florida for you. 😉

        Yes, but don’t let my jealousy hold you back from posting photos of sunny Florida. We could use a little warm sun up here in the north — even if it is only virtual 🙂

        • OK, by and by. This weekend I’m going dumpster hunting, and if the sun is out, it probably won’t show in my photographs. And there are still quite a few fog photographs to go in this series. But, yes, by and by I’m sure I’ll have some sunshine to send.

    Taken this morning in FL? It was moist and misty, and very un-Florida, and a wonderful morning to be out. Terrific photo—want to be there. Would you know if that is Knotted Spikerush? If so, I’d like to link it to my blog.

    • I should have done my research before this blog post went up, but I only checked later today. I think this is sand cordgrass (Spartina bakeri). This is what I used to make my identification: http://www.sarasotaaudubon.org/capital-campaign/common-plants-of-the-celery-fields/. I took this photo Sunday.

        Love it! Thank you. Seems some of the most evocative times in Florida are when it is not all sunbeams.

          Again…on your account, I’m starting today an iron-based Winogradsky column…iron from expensive vitamins, as Betsy Dyer suggested in her field guide.

    • Thank you, Adrian. One (of many) of the reasons I’m not a painter is that I would be very bored painting all those blades of sand cordgrass.

      • Yes! But I do think that painters are more skilled than us – we start with everything, and subtract (crop) bits to make it look better. They start with nothing, and have to build it all up.

        • I’m not so sure I agree with you completely, Adrian. Rather I think there are skilled painters and not-so-skilled painters; there are skilled photographers and not-so-skilled photographers. However, I suspect—with supporting evidence from at least one painter I know—that most painters consider their medium far superior to ours.

          • Yes, absolutely right, differing skills levels throughout each method – but whether one medium is superior to the other is purely subjective and can never be definitively answered – its like asking whether photography is art, everyone will have their own opinion. A 🙂

              • Yes, you think so and I think so >>> but I’m sure that “out there” there are many who would vehemently disagree – and one side will never convince the other, so there’s no point in arguing or getting ratty(!), we just know what we believe and get on with other things. A
