Kissimmee Prairie Preserve



  1. This is beautifully composed – the lone tree along the side of the road nicely balances the grasses foreground right – but it’s that silvery texture in the sky that does it for me.

  3. The road gives a nice balance of brightness to the RH side of the sky. The line of uncut grasses points up the cutting of the verge, which tapers off for the machine to go round the tree!

    The interplay of wild and maintained is the strong point in this.

  4. What a fascinating lesson in composition…

  5. Indeed fascinating. For me it’s the lone tree that makes this as all the ‘action’ seems to stem from it or at least passes it close by. The angled grasses and the scud of the clouds are give the overal plenty of whoosh…otherwise it would be just a little to static.

  6. The position of the lone tree is quite powerful. I get a tremendous sense of movement from this, and the tension between the lines formed by the road and those in the cut grass play wonderfully against the tall, bent grass and the clouds. Beautiful light, as is so frequently true in your pictures.

  7. reminds me of the road passing Chateauneuf.
    Indeed beautifully composed and nice timing for the light.
    That said, I don’t really find it too compelling, not much is bringing me back to view it.
