A trip to the ancient downland of Old Winchester National Nature Reserve. Grasses and flowers jostled into constant movement by the stong and gusty southerley wind. Popped a neutral density filter onto the front of the camera lens and took these photographs with exposures of between 2-10 secs. Liking the way that the movement has produced almost impressionistic paintings and that the the grasses have etched their motion into the images. There is also microbiology here. Beneath our feet, and underpinning this ecology,  a vast edifice of chalk made from the dead and calcified bodies of microorganisms known as coccliolithophores.
