An early ripe strawberry in an old whiskey barrel

The Overachiever

Just a quick shot for today, and at that, we had to get to it before the squirrels took any more berries.

Our prime strawberry patch is in the large garden, but near the deck we have an old whiskey barrel containing plants from last season. We didn’t expect much from them, but to our surprise, the daughter plants are up churning out some delicious berries.

I really enjoyed this composition, between the various shades of the strawberries, the old wood barrel and rusted hoops, and the dried leaves from the previous year’s parent plants. I only wish we could share them with you. This year’s crop is about the best we’ve ever had.


Thanks to the suggestion of a friend, Mark “KonaFlyer” Patton, I’ve finally gotten down to creating a video showing some of my HDR processing techniques. So far, it’s coming along well. Please stay tuned here for the (free!) release of the video. It should be interesting.
