I spent five days photographing bamboo across a number of great sites, and was inspired by the spectrum of vivid green and tan tones. One of the sites had a lovely creek, but as I was shooting the wind kept picking up, causing the bamboo to sway. The long exposures meant that it was impossible to capture a crisp, clear image at that site. Even so, I persisted and found a site with adequate stillness and an incredible play of light, captured above.
