Strawberry at the Path Edge

Strawberry at the Path Edge

Strawberry likes waste ground…poor soil…gravel…the edges of paths and roads, sand. And, of course, sun and heat, which is often associated with such spots. Not surprising then to find it along the edge of the trail at Rachel Carson NWR. Brave and fresh, these blossoms are in their prime. The articulated LCD on the H50 gets me right down to eye level with the blooms, the macro setting gets me in to 1/2 inch, and the image stabalization saves the exposure at 1/40th of a second.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide and macro.  F6.3 @ 1/40th @ ISO 100. Programed auto, -.7 EV exposure compensation.

Cropped from the top in Lightroom. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpened.
