Fiddle Head



Another photograph taken near Port Renfrew but this one was in the spring.

It is from the path down to Botanical Beach, a trip we made with Melinda Green Harvey who was visiting from Texas.

If you don’t know her excellent photography, check it out here.

    • I completely agree Andy, and it can happen so quickly. I wish I was near to where I have been doing field research – there are hectares of ferns that must be quite stunning when they get to this stage. Maybe I can find an excuse to get up there at just the right time.


    • Hi Melinda. As I recall on this walk you were seeing the world through a 24mm lens and I was looking through a 100mm macro – that could well explain quite a bit. The DOF was determined first by the light levels, but it was appropriate to the subject and I would have gone that way in better light too, if I had my thinking cap on.


    • Thankyou Ashoke. Melinda is one of my favourite photographers and has become a good friend too through blogging. The post-processing included a run through some sharpening software since there was a bit of camera motion blur to contend with. Shooting macro on a 100mm lens hand-held at 1/80th is not recommended (but I do that kind of thing anyway).
