# A PHOTO A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY

From the archives

8th April 2011

PURPLE FOUNTAIN GRASS (Pennisetum advena Rubrum) in the golden hour – Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne

Canon EOS 500D   (2009 model)

Canon lens ?? doesn’t say on the exif data,  but was probably Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS   (by the way ‘IS’ stands for image stabilising – all my lenses are IS ).

ISO 100

f/5.6

1/10s

I remember the exact time and place where I took the photo above.  Purple Fountain Grass normally looks mainly purple as in the example below.

It’s my favourite grass.

Some more images below at various times of the day.
