Pål says:

This photo of Timothy, Phleum pratense was taken in Ski, Akershus, Norway.

As a pollen allergic, I have an ambivalent relation to the timothy. In the middle of the summer, when the pollen spreads, I´m very careful not to contribute to the act. On the other hand, I have also felt an obsession to try to depict the  “monster”. In early midsummer mornings, after a silent night, the pollen can be spread widely. I found a backlit place where the sun highlighted the pollen.
