[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Phragmites australis is one of the commonest reeds in the world, a cosmopolitan species. I tried to photograph it against the sun. The picture was taken in the lowest nature reserve in the world : Einot Zukim near the Dead sea, altitude : -360 m.

Hello Ori,
I have seen this type of reed growing along the shores of Lake Erie but never knew the name of it. I too love to view it when it is backliten from the suns rays.
You have done a wonderful of photographing this beautiful wild reed with it's silvery grass-like head. I really like the vertical framing and natural colors. Great job Ori!!
