It's Blackberry season again in the Pacific Northwest...and they are delicious once they lose their red color and stay black for 3-4 days...yumm!
(I shot this using my Singh Ray -Tony Sweet Pro-Mist Filter.

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

Love the misty effect and they look beautifully ripe and juicy. When I lived in Europe many a year ago, it was always a sign during my mountain excursions with my parents that summer school holidays were inevitably coming to an end. School always started on the first day of September.

@Darkelf Photography: Thank you Maciek! That is a great story! Where I lived in Southern Colorado as a little kid, we sometimes hads ow shortly after the start of school as our town sat in a valley but it was at 7,000 feet elevation!! ;-)

Michael Skorulski from Toronto, Canada

Yes, this reminds me of how good they are when they are ripe. Excellent.
