It is spring in Australia, so this weekend I decided to head to the Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens to experiment with taking macro shots of all the pretty flowers.
I haven’t played much with macro photography, nor shallow depth of field, and while I wouldn’t know it until I got back to my computer, I wasn’t having much luck capturing any good macro shots (but that is why we experiment).
I was, however, also taking a few snapshots with my trusty go-to lens throughout the afternoon, including this one of a bunch of floral debris in the car park on my way out.
In a garden full of beautiful, blooming flowers, I also managed to find something beautiful, if trodden, hiding in the least likely place.
Just goes to show: keep an eye out, because you never know where you might find a hidden gem.
Equipment / Settings:
Sigma 17.0-70mm f/2.8-4.0 lens
70mm, 1/80 secs @ f/4.0, ISO400
