Cloudberries and more

Recommended Posts

We have had a lot of rain lately, so we took advantage of a brief break in the weather to check on the growth of some of our local plants.

 

These are called salmonberries by locals.  They are, in fact, cloudberries. I do not really care for the taste, and they are loaded with seeds. It appears we will have a very good crop of them this year. The one below will probably open in a day or so. These are all using the EM1 mark II with a 60mm F2.8 Olympus macro lens.

Below is a Tufted Fleabane. I really wonder at the names of many plants, and how they came by them.

Were you using flash? The first two seem a little hot to my eyes.

Nope. I was not using the flash, but the lighting was a bit "challenging."   I will take another look at them and see what I can do; or maybe even go back and get the same shots again.

See if you can find something like this at your photo gear store.

Thanks Dallas.  They said it was out of stock, but they would get back to me soon.
