This has been a good month for flowers as well as entries.
I still have a couple more to post.
Even though Marylin is on the move, she sent this entry before driving through the desert to Arizona. The rose photo was taken in her mother’s yard in Plano.
“A couple of days ago, when it was sunny, I was on my way to my red van (in the background) and I decided to go back inside the house to get my camera with a 105mm lens to capture this rose with the noon lighting. I used the flash to make sure the lighting would not come only directly from the top.”
So here we have another gal thinking outside of the box by using fill light from her flash on a sunny day. And Robin… just in case you misread what Marylin said… it was “noon” lighting not “moon” lighting!
Now I must admit that when I read that her red van was in the background behind the rose, I was expecting to see a van parked behind a rosebush but instead, I merely saw a streak of out of focus red due to the shallow depth of field. Excellent choice of camera settings Marylin!
Hope you are having a wonderful time traveling the southwest! Be careful out there. You never can tell when you might run into a crazy woman!
