Winter pods

As I’ve said before, I love the G11’s articulating screen because it makes framing from physically difficult angles easy. In this case, I had the camera positioned under the dry Mexican sunflower pods with the lens pointed nearly straight up towards the sky–and I didn’t have to lay on my back in the wet grass to frame the shot. I exposed for the pods and let the sky totally blow out. The “over-exposed” sky as background turned the scene into an interesting abstract image.
