38/365 Yellow

Photobucket

I am discovering how calming photography is for me. Saturday's are a day of rest for us. It's a slow and quiet day and I actually look forward to just being with my camera. On other days, I'm usually pulled in several directions--all day, but Saturdays are wonderfully different.

Still getting to know my macro lens and what it can do. I loved the way the light from the sun made the symmetrical patterns on the bush behind the Kangaroo Paws. I wanted to back light the plant and got the added bonus of the flare from the sun.

Lesson: Pay attention to the light. It does some really beautiful and unexpected things.

Tomorrow: Slice of life

Beautiful background bokeh in this and the flower is nice and sharp. Pretty colors too. All around, wonderful macro!

Very unusual looking. Get job on the DOF and the bokeh is really pretty with the sunlight.
