Red Berries on a Log


It is always exciting when you come upon a great composition of berries and fallen logs. John Kuzak and I were on a day trip down the Killarney highway when we spotted a pond just off the road. We decided that we would explore the pond on our way back. This would put us in late evening and good lighting. When we came back we walked into the pond locale and John pointed out the berries to me. I had never seen these red berries  growing that thick together. With the bright red of the berries and green leaves offset by the grayish color of the fallen log I used the stump as my anchor and came up with this composition. With the camera on the tripod and lense zoomed to 34 mm,I set the shutter speed to 1/40 sec to get my f stops at F8.

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.
