Rose Hip Variation

Beach Rose Hip under ice. Kennebunk Maine

In a variation in yesterday’s theme, Beach Plums are, of course, actually rose hips from the Rugosa Rose, an invasive species brought in to stabilize dunes and since run wild all up and down the East Coast. When harvested and made into jelly, they are Beach Plum Jelly. This one wears a coating of ice from a recent storm, turning into native sculpture. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. In-camera HDR. Nominal exposure: 1/125th @ f4 @ ISO 100. Processed in Photoshop Express.
