While exploring the historical site of Paestum (near Pompeii), originally a Greek colony in the 6th century B.C., I spotted these grasses. Just as I framed them against the ancient stone, this young man stepped into my view. I’m glad he did.

    I think that was meant to happen with this young fellow stepping into the picture and into the tall grasses...perfect timing.

    I agree. Sometimes having an anonymous person in your shot really enhances it. Excellent capture of these lovely rough textured grasses against the ruins.

    Nice use of aperture. The warm orange/red tones are very pretty. We certainly don't have grass like this in Texas!
