Salmonberry blossom – looks a bit like a dancer with a pink skirt 🙂
The pink dots of salmonberry are one of the signs of spring and I’ve been trying to get good salmonberry blossom photos for years now. This one, I think, might be the best yet. The trick is to find a location that’s not too dark, a branch that’s at the right height and isn’t swaying in the breeze, and a flower that hasn’t been battered by a passing shower, is a nice colour, and has another one behind it for extra interest. It also helps that the camera I used (Sony RX100II) has a larger depth of field for a given aperture than our SLR, so more of the flower is in focus.
Mission accomplished? I guess we’ll see when next year comes around.
