White with a pink blush

A lovely shot, up close, with this gorgeous flower.

Floral Gorgeousness

So, finally a day with little to no breeze. Besides the impossibility of macro in the wind, it is too cold.

Clarity I seek, Clarity I attained

And we have a winner. Passionfruit flower. I love the colours, the structure and the tendrils.

Please, enjoy the depth and clarity. Download it, zoom in and just be at peace with the world.

Day 2 – I am mastering this lens . . .

27 May

WOW! So, after some excellent, friendly help from Ken Rockwell @ kenrockwell.com

Turns out it is from the late 80’s early 90’s. so, one would rightly expect a full frame 35mm?

Initially there was some thoughts it was a current lens, but it being FX and not having a “D”, it was identified.

Tendrils Reaching

This is a phenomenal lens to play with. the depth of field using the zoom is fun to play with, but the results from a macro, handheld! I am gob-smacked. granted a Nikon D610 witht he right settings helps, sure, but the optics of this lens.

Clarity is what I seek.

I can see I will have a lot of work for this lens. I love shooting flowers and macro, so this is ideal. As a AU$110 lens from Ebay, ex Japan, I can definitely not complain.

Again thanks to Ken @ kenrockwell.com for the help identifying the lens.
