Cellpic Sunday – 16 April 2017

Buckeye, Arizona.

For this Easter Sunday, I decided to share an image reflecting the arrival of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Most of the blossoms fell off the orange tree in our back yard leaving many, many tiny green “balls,” some of which will eventually become full-grown oranges. This year’s harvest from our tree was over 130 oranges on a single 5-year-old tree. Judging from the quantity of these orange buds, if the weather is good, we can expect another decent crop next March as well. It will take a year for them to mature.

About the photo: Captured with my Samsung S7, every so often, I get the urge to experiment with the selective focus option. Aim the camera at your subject and touch the screen in the area of the object you want in focus. If the background is far enough behind the subject, the camera will deliver a sharply focused subject with a pleasingly fuzzy background. Shot at f/1.7; 1/1900 Sec.; ISO 50. The rule for Cellpic Sunday is simple. The image must be captured on a mobile device.
