November 11 - Olive Tree

Took Max, our puppy, for a walk today and discovered a lovely olive grove not far from home. The grass is thick and lush after the best rain here for many years. Again I'm happy with the effect you can get with shallow depth of field to isolate a subject, in this case the main olive tree.

You can find this olive grove in Google Earth if you 'Fly To': 3719'56.01"N 6 2'14.37"W

Canon EOS 20D
1/1000s f/2.0 at 85.0mm iso100 full exif

This is a beautiful photo. These massive trees remind me of our live oaks in Louisiana.

Superb use of DOF. I was very surprised to see you achieved this with a 20D rather than a 5D. GMV.

This shot is really cool, it almost looks like a miniature shot of a Bonzai grove!!
