Beach Grass in Blizzard, Jones Beach Sate Park, Long Island, NY. (Note: the correct title should have been Beach Grass after Blizzard. Please see my comment on image titles and critiquing below :).)

Evaluative metering +2 2/3 stops: 1/200 sec. at f/9 set manually. One-Shot central sensor AF and recompose.
