Bees

29 Jan

Pottering in the garden this afternoon and I noticed the leek flowers were covered in bumble bees.  After a quick dash inside for the camera I came back to find only one bumble bee left, but plenty of honey bees.  These are the best shots, with both my 12-40 zoom and my 60mm macro.  I’m loving the detail I was able to capture.

These flowers are amazing.  I have a tendency to not have much success with pot plants, usually.  This plant is over 2 years old, and shows no sign of giving up on me.

Such a pretty little flower in my local embroidery shops courtyard.

Playing with macro

14 May

Another day to play with my macro lens.  Trying to work on focus and depth of field.  I like these two shots, it’s not always about being as close to the subject as possible.

Flowers at Mumsies

25 Feb

Today I got the chance to snap some pics of a couple of the flowers at Mum’s house.  I love flowers and getting in close we see more than when admiring them in the garden.

Mt Wellington

13 Feb

The Mountain is an icon.  To those who live in and around Hobart most of us can see the mountain.  I grew up with the mountain as a backdrop and whenever we wanted to know what the weather was going to do, a look at the mountain was always our guide.  The one thing that I don’t have now is a view of the mountain – although He Who Suffers tells me if I stand on the roof I would see it just fine – be ok if I didn’t have a height phobia.  So today as I headed out on my errands I had lots of time to see ‘my’ mountain.  Of course the best picture taking spots were not conducive to stopping the car but I will work on that next time.  For now this will have to do.

As I pulled into the driveway this afternoon I noticed a new flower.  Yay, I don’t know what it is, a little native that has just popped up, but it is rather cute.  I think I could happily spend all my time photographing flowers, I just might have a bit of trouble in the winter months.

Mixing it up.

I started today playing with macro shots again.  Verdict?  Need to use a tripod.

Tonight I had another session with full moon shots.  Cloud free tonight, but I’m not sure how how I got the ghost green moon.

When I pointed the camera towards the sunset I found better shots – I think.
