IN THE FIELD: Fruitful

July 9, 2012 34 comments

A sure sign of summer is when the blueberries begin to ripen. The bushes are loaded this season and will provide a nice harvest.

One of my favorite things for dessert this time of year is homemade blueberry pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Another favorite is a big bowl of vanilla or peach ice cream with blueberries on top.

It was way too hot this week for doing any kind of baking. And we didn’t have any ice cream in the freezer. Had we gone out for some it likely would have melted by the time we got home.

So we did the next best thing. We added handfuls of berries to bowls of fresh sliced melon. Ahhh refreshing.

I handheld this shot with my 35mm f1.8 lens at ISO 200, 1/350th of a second at f3.5. Then I ate the ripe ones.
