More experimentation with the macro lens...
I love the way it captures the depth of field....

  1. nice subtle colors and composition !

  2. I hope this is an archived photo or I'm going to be just a little jealous. I love it.

  3. it looks very nice enlarged. :)

    Would you join another meme?
    NF Blo-Ma goes for both flowers and macro shots. :)

    A new edition when I wake up.(going to bed soon) :)

  4. thanks Gunilla!'s about 6 weeks old...we had snow then, but this was at a lower elevation with just a bit of green showing!!! The lake it was by is now completely frozen over...

    Thanks Nature Footstep! I forgot about your macro/flower meme!!!

  5. It looks so spring-like! hard to believe it was taken six weeks ago!

  6. That is really so beautiful and very well focused!

  7. Very cool. It is almost three dimensional.

  8. The detail and focal range are perfect. The diffused color gives it the appearance of fine art. Bravo!


  9. I know what you mean Kateri! I saw it and was totally surprised! While there wasn't any snow on the ground there at the time, the week before, there had been!

    Thanks Andrea...that's thanks to my new macro lens!!!

    Thanks Margaret! I know what you mean...with the one little branch coming straight at you it kind of explodes off the surface!!!

    Thanks Genie!!! I love the bokeh effect my lens is so good at capturing!!!

    When I first started looking to upgrade my original camera, the people helping me all said pretty much the same's not the camera's the lens that's important! I've come to agree!!!

  10. You are having such fun with this lens!

  11. I enlarged it and I loved it!
    Happy New Year to you. I know I have some catching up to do here, so I'll be back directly to do so!

  12. Yes I am Petrea!!!

    Thanks Pat!!! Glad you're back!!!

  13. thanks for joining NF Flowers with this gorgeous bloom. :)
