These beautifully shaded roses are still blooming despite the drought and are very pleasing to the eye.

The next session of extension tube practise with just one instead of three this time. It does take some getting used to. The light works rather differently and getting so much closer to the subject, in this case some Chrysanthemum blooms, takes some adjustment as well. Nevertheless I am thoroughly enjoying the experimentation.

Due to all the favourable feedback I’ve received on these images I have posted one for sale on the fineartamerica floral art page. Thanks for the encouragement everyone!

I received a rather early birthday present from my lovely hubby today – extension tubes for my camera. For those of you who are still saving for a macro lens like I am – this is an affordable alternative. Played around with it in the yard and was very pleased with the results.

Located a few photos of Escallonia that I didn’t get to post. The soft natural white to pink gradient is rather pretty on these tiny blooms.
