02 Jan 14. Welcome to 2014 and the start of year 9 of the Daily Image. Here's hoping that all your teams won, that you didn't party too much last night, and unlike in our neck of the woods, if there were fireworks that you were able to clearly see them. The day after Christmas I took a couple of guests down to the Point-No-Point Lighthouse and the neighboring nature reserve. Lining the path that traverses the reserve is a plant that has, in the winter, some very nice berries on some very prickly branches. While I'm sure Br'er Rabbit would find the bushes conducive to travel, most humans would likely not. But it is very photogenic and I found that I was having a good time trying to capture something a bit different from what I would normally shoot. After critically looking over what I got, I elected to go with one particular image and adjust the colors to a pleasing set of soft reds and then further adjusting the entire image to give it a fog like appearance. Not exactly a big stretch considering our weather these past few days. I placed a small border around it with a color selected from within the color set of the image but if you find that distracting simply make a small crop of about 5 pixels and it will go away. Obviously a creative image to start the year but it is Thursday so right on schedule. Think I'll dedicate Friday's to macro, so perhaps another from this walk but one likely concentrating on just a berry or two. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 200; 1/60 sec @ f / 9.
