Photosynthesis

Energy of the SunIn a meeting at work today we discussed the growing lack of vitamin D that is spreading around various cultures of the world. With things like skin cancer etc being well published and awareness’ raised, there is a growing population who are now not getting enough sun. In NZ/Australia, around 1/3 of the population are now lacking in ‘D’.

With that in mind, looking around the garden, todays talk reminded me of the whole photosynthesis process that occurs in plants, and the resulting consequence of lack of sun for many of these green leafed growths.

Shooting with the Ricoh GRD IV, with the sun approaching the ‘golden hour’, I switched to macro and got behing a little plant soaking up the last of the days sun. Resized in post processing, otherwise as is from camera.
