Sunlit grass seedhead
With spare time I managed to climb the hill and enjoy quite lovely views out to Rangitoto Island and One Tree Hill. Also, on this particular night the sun was setting and giving a lovely orange glow. There were clumps of grasses atop the hill, so by lying down amongst the grasses I could see some grass heads beautifully backlit by the setting sun. That's what I tried to capture in the image you see here. 200mm lens, ISO 200, 1/400s and f8.
Check out the flickr links above and let me know if you prefer on white ... or black.
Remember I mentioned views of One Tree Hill. There's also a shot of that here.
