Up CLose and Personal.

Posted by mervfrench on September 4, 2011

We ended up at Araluen Gardens today for a picnic and a little look around.  It’s been many a long year since we were there last so it was a good afternoon out. 

If you are into flowers well there are plenty of opportunities for  shooting them here. 

I did see  Adrian Wayte there  from a distance, but couldn’t catch up with him.

I took a few shots and this one is a close up of a Tulips private parts.

This is hand held  resting the best I could so a bit lucky to get this , the shots were mostly failures , just not sharp enough, so this is one of the better ones.

Taken with the 7d and 100 macro.

      Yes it it easier with the tripod but we had lugged the esky and food and chairs and all the rest of the stuff for 8 people a fair way so I wasn’t going back for the tripod. 🙂

      And I wasn’t sure i was actually going to take many shots given the crowd that was there.
