The golden hop vine in our back yard is endlessly interesting to me as a subject. Every year it races up its trellis and tangles its way across the top, occasionally looping back down, catching in the rosebush, creeping through gaps in the fence, or heading straight up in the air. It’s beautiful against a brilliant blue sky, but also with light glowing in the leaves against a washed out white sky. I keep trying to get the perfect shot, but maybe there isn’t just one.

I, personally, adore the white sky effect. In fact, I intentionally try to create it by overexposing (in camera) my strongly backlit subjects. I have a grouping of such images at Flickr if you’d like to see them. http://goo.gl/PAn7
Some of my favorite shots are completely blown out – I love the effect. Nice Flickr set!
