Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details Take 2

I don’t normally have a second go at the Weekly Photo Challenge but I had to this week.  Why?  because I finally got my shiny new 100mm F2.8 IS L macro lens!!!!

Haven’t had much of a chance to take it for a spin yet but here are two shots I took yesterday of Clematis flowers that are forming seed heads after flowering.

    I especially love your second image. And macro is the way to go!

      I suspect that I could easily get lost in macro if I allowed myself, such a different way to see the world

    I think a macro lens is in my future, near future hopefully.

    Very fine photos. Think I want to treat myself to a macro lens!

  7. Feels like touching them with the tips of my fingers, so light-ly! Wonderful…

  8. I, too, really like the spiral image! I am also hoping to get another camera to delve more deeply into macro….

    Enjoy you new macro lens. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Two good starting images.

      Thanks Rick, I have discovered I suck at handholding so going to have to work more with my tripod to get sharp images 🙂
