In addition to playing with this week’s Photo Challenge, I also visited Stow Lake to practice extreme close-ups. Normally, my close-ups in nature don’t work out very well. I even created my own Murphy’s Law, Bair’s Corollary of Outdoor Close-Ups: flowers will remain absolutely still until you try to take a picture, at which point the wind will kick up and stay kicked up until you give up and walk away. However, yesterday’s batch yielded a few acceptable shots. Maybe I just learned how to hold the DSLR steady.
All of the colors, especially in that second picture, are true to life, and all shots are #nofilter.
