I stopped at the park for a little while on the way home today to capture the most beautiful day with a beautiful sky…full of amazing clouds!
I started with some HDR shots with my Nikon 18-200mm VR.
When I was here I felt like I was walking through a Fairy Tale!
And then I switched to my Nikon 105mm f/2.8 AF-S Micro Lens to give it a run for it’s money!
I’m trying to get the hang of shooting REALLY close with the lens to get that really abstract-y look for flower photography.
The hardest part was focusing on the flowers when the wind kept blowing (Grrrrrrrrr!) AND I was using a tripod! So many were sent to the recycle bin when I got home but these were the ones that I kept that I loved!!
The ones that appealed to me most today were the very abstract flower shots below. I just feel like they would make great abstract art pieces to hang on the wall.
A little more realistic macros for you:
What a beautiful day to be out and about! I need to go back though and keep practiing and practicing these abstract macros. The focus is the hardest part!
