Day 30

A couple of days in the 70s have got things moving right along. Welcome, my friend, but I'm afraid you're in for some chilly weather!

Photo info:  I would usually wait to take this photo...  we have 10-15 mph winds right now, so getting a flower to sit still isn't the easiest thing.  But this is the first blossom of the year, and with the wind and weather in the forecast, I felt it was now or never.  And never seems so sad.

So I cranked the ISO up, and shot away until one was sharp enough.  So here it is,  7D, ISO 1250, f/13, 1/250th.  Ring flash provided just enough light.  Actually, I was trying to shoot without the flash, that is when I upped the ISO to 1250.  Probably could have brought it back down to 800 or 400, but I didn't.  And here it is.  Happy Early spring.

Lessons learned: Gusts are hard to anticipate, but there are always lulls.   January daffodils are special.  The neighbor dog may someday be my friend.  Maybe.  I need to keep cheese in my pocket.

I also have the Sigma 180mm lens but it is only for cropped cameras I believe. I have not explored the Macro World and really should.

Thanks Mike.
Wish I had the 100mm macro lens now. It would be nice on the 5D. Or the 180mm would be really nice. A little more working room. That's about the same as the 60mm lens on the 7D, so I'm set for now.
I attended a RMSP photo weekend last weekend and really enjoyed the Macro session. Even a 2 hour lecture gave me lots to think about when shooting macro shots.

Really nice compositon. I have the Canon 100mm macro lens and ring mount lash. I will take a macro workshop one of these days!
