Tried a macro shot recently. It was taken using the natural light coming in the windows and to get any detail in the stamen the white of the flower has been bleached out.
It’s going to be pretty wet this weekend so I might have another shot at it. Those lilies have long been binned but I’m sure I’ll find something else. Might be a good excuse to bring flowers home for my wife.
I purchased a Nikon Micro 105mm 2.8 AI-S last year and still haven’t used it. This was an earlier attempt using a 300mm lens and a lot of cropping. I’m looking forward to getting out and seeing the difference
What better way to spend Valentine’s Day then going to a model railway village. Okay, it’s not the most conventional place to go but we do have a two year old and, well, it’s all about him really. He’s big into trains at the moment and loved it down at the Model Railway Village in Clonakilty, Cork.
You can see the size of the models compared to Adam, it’s great down there and the weather really helped. We’ll be back soon.
