Here are some Spring Flower photos which I wish to share with you. Click on the images to enlarge them.
The photos are all taken with the Macro Lens on my camera. I am just learning how to control the macro lens, with the kind assistance of David Young and Richard Jones.
Snowflake - arching flowers
Thanks to both of them for the time they have spent with me, and for their encouragement.
I am learning to experiment with the variables of F-stops (aperture settings) and shutter speeds, and also with the
light from the flash. The latter was most problematic, with
the Snowflakes, which have an almost crystalline structure in their translucent petals, giving them great reflectivity.
Jonquil - single
This is a lovely single Jonquil, which was in with a bunch of "Earlicheer" double Jonquils. As with "Earlicheer", this Jonquil has a lovely sweet perfume. It has a far nicer perfume than the distinctive odour emitted by the gold and orange Jonquils, known as "soleil d'or" (golden sun).
