Scarlet Kingdom Revisited
I really love this red columbine flower area of Shipley Nature Center and especially this bokeh background on this particular image...and apparently so does Mr. Allen H-Bird ;-D
Happy Scarlet and Sunshine Sunday to all..Hope everyone had a gr8 4th of July...I am a bit bummed out..Last night ..I asked my hubbie to hand me my backpack of lenses..as I was going to switch from my 100-400mm lens to the 50mm f/1.4! as I was way too close for the shots..as you can see from my previous post..Well..I had not zippered the backpack up..and out my 50mm came .. bang! on the ground...well...I tried to use it..and it would not focus at all...so switched to 70-200mm and hoped that the 50mm was just not working cuz of distance to the fireworks or something like that..but when I got home...tried again and still not focusing..so I guess something on the inside is broken? I wonder if they can fix it? First time for me to mess up one of my lenses...;-((( Well, and then I didn't end up caring for my fireworks shots too much..I liked the one I posted pretty well..mostly cuz of the black area..well..I dunno..
But anyways , when I got home... I saw Gary's photo and he listed the exif info..I must say..I was doing pretty much the opposite of what he did..his shot came out perfect...will try to remember for next year!
