Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leafs a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
-Robert Frost

There are a number of backlit images of late, h2 (Oliver did one in the recent July 2012 FS) and I comment on them if they cross my path. This is beautiful. The rimlight and the golden hour colour is stunning. I gave it a 7. 8 if the little grass stalk bottom right was held back out of the shot :P
I am tempted to get that Nikkor 60mm Macro especially for the DX bodies but I think I'll settle for the newer Nikkor 100mm f/2.8 VRII...now where's the nearest liquor store and my sawn off shotgun...?

Stunning - truly. This one batch of grass has its own personal sun. And you happened to catch that.

Loved this, one of my top picks. Dumbfounded that it didn't break a 6.
