Day 007 – 01072011

It is cold, foggy, and dreary outside. A visit to the local botanical gardens yielded this shot of  a prickly pear.

I purposely desaturated the vivid colors of the fruit and increased the exposure so that this image conveys the kind of weather we’re currently experiencing in Northern California. Sharpening was also added in Adobe Camera Raw.

Technical data: aperture f/4.0, exposure 1/160th sec, ISO 100.
