Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut.
We went on our regular flat hike on the Appalachian Trail from Cornwall Bridge south toward Kent. We passed by a number of fields before the trail hugs the bank of the Housatonic River. The last two fields were completely covered with Queen Anne’s lace. There was so much of it exposure was difficult: the center of the frame was washed out white while the edges were under exposed. Very much like shooting a waterfall on a dark background. Spot metering usually solved this and sometimes creative use of exposure compensation.
All of my macro shots of the structure of this magnificent weed turned out blurred, less from movement in slight breeze, more from the Ricoh’s less than wonderful macro mode which after so many years of struggling with it one would think I’d avoid by now. Sigh.
