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 love macro pictures, they are fascinating! Great picture by the way! ;D
Thanks, I have been saving a long time to get my macro lens, now I have a whole new world to explore with it 🙂
Thanks, looking forward to playing more
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
Gorgeous!! Congrats on the new lens – it looks like you are off and running 🙂
Oh I have a LONG way to go, but looking forward to the journey
I think a macro lens is in my future, near future hopefully.
I hope so, it is a lot of fun 🙂 Good luck with the saving up !
Very fine photos. Think I want to treat myself to a macro lens!
Thanks, I have waited many years to get this lens, and I am going to enjoy it 🙂
Feels like touching them with the tips of my fingers, so light-ly! Wonderful…
Thankyou, that makes me feel like I captured the feeling I wanted to portray in these images
I, too, really like the spiral image! I am also hoping to get another camera to delve more deeply into macro….
When I saw the spiral it was what made me go and get the camera and take the shot 🙂
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 🙂
That second shot is really beautiful – enjoy the lens!
Thanks Tina, I just captured what nature provided 🙂
Wow that is a stunning picture! I’ll have to check out that lense!
