Monday color 42

November cherry tomatoesTaken just a few days back, this is another current one for Monday color. Despite having a couple of overnight frosts, and the bare fact that the tomato plants never did well this year because of the sporadic sunlight in the back yard, one of the cherry tomato plants is still valiantly, defiantly producing fruit (and yes, tomatoes are a fruit.)

This, by the way, is another example of the lighting produced by the new flash reflector – a little directional, but not too harsh. Notice the lack of sharp shadows anywhere, including by foreground stems onto background tomatoes. In fact, the light seems softer than the earlier shots of the same tomato plant with the former rig that I liked, though those were shot at night while this one was during the day, and so ambient light might have played a small part. I’m still experimenting…
