It’s almost the end of March and still our landscape remains white, gray, and brown, with occasional additions of more white. Bored with looking at my white backyard, I went to the Como Park Conservatory for a dose of much needed warmth and color, and an opportunity to try out a new macro lens that has been sitting in its box since Christmas.
This post is for those of you still suffering from exposure to excessive white-ness in your outdoor landscapes.
and they smelled just great too!
I am impressed with the way the macro lens grabbed a sharp edge on the red in this pansy.
This was a a difficult shot for my camera with the dark background and underlit flower of the lady’s slipper orchid. The macro lens did a nice job of capturing good depth of field, even at 1/40 second and f 5.6 .
Pretty good depth of field in this lady’s slipper orchid as well — the flower was posed at an impossible angle. with one of the sepals coming straight out at me.
