Autumn Bliss

The-last-of-the-harvestNow the Victoria plums have finished with the last wasp-damaged remains rotting into the soil and the blackbirds have feasted on the grapes, there’s just the autumn raspberries left to harvest. This year I haven’t netted the raspberries, the bees have had easier access and the pollination rate has been better than usual. The weather has been gentle and I’ve had the best crop of Autumn Bliss in years. And, the strangest thing is despite the unprotected canes the birds have left them alone!

    1. Thank you for your praise.
      Regarding the lighting absolutely honestly it is just natural daylight from an east-facing window with the curtain half drawn across. I can’t remember if you shoot with a DSLR, but if you do you’ll know about the ‘manual’ setting. I just spend a little time fiddling around with a combination of shutter speed, aperture and zooming in and out a bit (gosh I sound technically challenged – hope I’m not offending photographers with that garbled explanation!!)
