Reeds in black and white`

I often feel that black and white offers the best way for me to express what I feel about reeds and grasses.  It is a medium that conveys a crispness of shape, a hint of rhythmic movement and, through the careful use of tones, the opportunity to highlight or subdue elements within the composition.  Often, as in this picture, there seems to be an overlap between photography, etching and wood engraving.
