JAPONICA BERRIES

These berries from one of many Japonica-type species of thorny shrubs occur in big clusters in late September and October near my home. They were facing away from the sun and so in order to bring out the detail of the fruits I used a piece of white card to reflect the light back onto the subject. I was also mindful not to allow the sun to shine directly into my macro lens as this would have cased lens flare and lack of detail and contrast.
