Mists and mellow fruitfulness

So, it is apparently turning into Autumn (a season that used to start in October in my book) and so I attacked our little patch with my 126mm macro* and here are the results

Never tried growing this stuff before. Shame you can't eat the leaves 'cos there are so many of them..



These have been quite good this year. Then again I don't think they are difficult to grow.



Come to think of it, we didn't actually intend to grow these at all..



These however were lovingly tended. Now we have them coming out of our ears



We have two types of these, one cultivated and one wild. Both nice and tasty (no apples this year to go with them though)



And you can have this shot as well, just because I like it :-)



Pete

*The excellent Tamron SP90 f2.5 with the EC14. A combination you can use wide open it seems :-)

You swine, the berry shots are so good I'm hungry again and only an hour and a half after tea.

All in all a nice set.

Many thanks sir :-)

I have to admit most of the subjects have now been eaten (apart from the rose)

Great set of pictures. Love the rose, but personally I would crop to a ssquare and lose the OOF white window frame (although I suspect you intentionally included it).

Thanks for the kind comments all.. (I haven't taken many outdoor pictures for weeks as I have been busy re-photographing stacks of old film negatives).

Anyway, yes, I decided I wanted our OOF house in the background for the rose shot. I was going for the macro-with-context idea, rather like this one from the same session..



On a technical note: The EC14 and the Tamron SP90 work just as well together as the EC14 and Zuiko 50 macro. Nice and sharp and no teleconverter tradeoffs that I can see. I am most impressed.

Its interesting how different lenses have different strong points.. My cheap 35-70 Tamron is small and reasonably sharp, a harmless little lens: But one thing it does particularly well is bokeh
