Asters against a background of sumac and goldenrod.    Learning experience:  I was experimenting with my camera's 'Creative Mode:  A-Dep", which is supposed to analyze a scene and choose an optimum f-stop for achieving the necessary depth of field to keep it all in reasonably sharp focus.  I should add that it was a windy day.  The camera chose a tiny aperture of f/25, resulting in an exposure time of 1/40 sec, and apparently picked a primary focus point somewhere in the middle of the scene.  All that is fairly predictable.  The outcome was unexpected, though in hindsight I should have guessed... The result was a better evocation of the motion blur that expressed the windiness than any of my own choices for settings.  It wasn't what I was trying to achieve with the shot, but I still liked the goofiness of the outcome.

Detail, Pacific dogwood foliage.  The half red, half yellow aspect of this leaf fascinates me.  What environmental, or internal biochemical factors caused such a division?    October, 2010.
