    Newer Older

    an early A.M. shot...
    red cypress blossoms close by mid-day w/ the heat. ubiquitous sunflower provides background.

    SB-600's fired manually from left & right @ about 1/4 power. triggered w/ NIkon's CLS/AWLS.

    lens note: Nikkor 80-200mm, f/2.8 w/ Tamron SP 1.4 X TC- so EXIF data shows f/5.6- really f/8, FYI

      Ooh, one of my faves yet! The composition is so cool with the red cypress over the sunflower, and you caught the hummer looking straight at-ya! Great work.
