Felt like I've been in a photography slump lately-and I was going to do a 365 project?! I've had my camera with me enough while at Levis working, but nothing jumped at out at me to make a picture. Sometimes, I think one should just press the shutter-at anything, just to get the ball rolling. Seems once that first shot is taken, then I start seeing things again. So on my way to Levis early in the morning I just pulled over at the "Sturtz Prairie" near Columbia (Clark County, Town of Hewett). This is a native grass prairie restoration Toni and Rick Sturtz have been establishing for the past several years on their property. I had noticed some large cone flowers coming up lately as I've driven by, and of course, Big Blue Stem, brown eyed susans and daises.
....and it wouldn't be a photo shoot without ferns! I don't know this species, but like them. Black and white seemed to be the way to view these.
