These beans were in the shade of acanopy, at a crowded farm stand at the farm market. I had the 17-50mm F2.8 EX DG OS mounted on the SD1. I didn’t know exactly what I was hunting for at the farm market, but when I saw these amazing purple beans mixed in with the green beans, I knew I had to grab a shot! I’d like to go back here again on a non-holiday weekend friday, and hopefully have a bit more room to reshoot this shot at a better angle, as I absolutely love that deep, rich purple of the beans mixed in with the blues and greens and old wine cases in this shot made at 1/250 @ F5.6 @ ISO 200–but would love to make this shot again with less rakish angles and without the tent pole and box truck in the background. But those purples. Wow!
