Ground Cherry

A macro lens was a must for this shot.  I got my settings just so and then held this wee tomato (aka ground cherry) between my fingers, watching as the light found its way into the ground cherry. I pressed and released the shutter and captured the translucent beauty.

I shot at f/2.8 and a shutter speed of 1/50. I used my 60 mm macro lens...and I held my breath. No tripod, just my fingers, so breathing was not really optional.

Sometimes you just have to go where the light is and that was the case for this picture. Turning the ground cherry until I found the light's sweet spot was what needed to happen. And when it happens, it is indeed sweet.
