2012, Day 210 - Flare

A couple days ago I was taking a walk with my friend Rachel to get some frozen yogurt.  The sun was high in the sky and its rays were hot on your skin, it felt oppressive despite being only a hair over eighty degrees.  As we walked the afternoon light illuminated plants in the most stunning way so I stopped for a few pictures.

I like the warmth in the tone of this image and the bokeh (out of focus areas) is delightful.  The webs crisscrossing the leaflets.  A greater depth of field would have ruined the bokeh but more of the frond would have been in focus.  It was a tough decision and I bracketed the aperture but this is the one I like best.  I supposed I could have done some focus stacking but it would have required a tripod which I didn't have...
