Today I’m participating in the A Word A Week Challenge. This week’s theme is “arch”.  I encourage you to click on each photo to see a larger view. If you like what you see, please subscribe to this blog to receive updates of the new photos I post, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

I’ve been waiting for an appropriate photo challenge theme to feature the photos below, and I think arch is just perfect. I love the tall pink grass with its lovely seeds and how they swing gently in the breeze. They get so tall they arch down from the weight. They ‘re a challenge to photograph because the background isn’t always what I want, but I love their pink color and the many arches they create. This type of grass is technically called Pennisetum setaceum ‘Fireworks’ (Variegated Purple Fountain Grass).

    Lovely lovely post. I like that you’ve found arches that are alive, not carved by the hand of man.

      When I first saw the theme, I thought I had nothing, but as I was going through my recent photos, I realized they’d be a great fit. Natural creates some beautiful arches on its own.

  3. A great place for these photos!

    Those are great natural arches and for some reason they make me think of Dr. Seuss books – I have no idea why.
