Pine cone on cinders


Pine cone on cinders, originally uploaded by dustinjblodgett.

I found this field of fallen pine cones while out shooting at Sunset Crater Volcano and I liked the randomness of their arrangement on the cinders. The contrast of the reddish brown cones and black cinders is also nice. I was able to get some nice bokeh in the background too with a large aperture size.

Dustin, your photos are very nice! I love the colors and the angles and have really enjoyed your blog. I esp. love this shot today partly b/c I love pine cones and miss them here in TX (had plenty in NC). It's a really fantastic shot. Have a great weekend.
