Spent some of today wandering around the local park, trying to improve my macro skills. The afternoon was more successful, as I took my tripod with me.
There were a few shots came out slightly clearer or closer-up than this, however I really liked the colours of this shot. I’ll post a few more over the next few days, and you’ll see what I mean.
For you equipment geeks, this was taken using my Nikkor 70-210 f4-5.6, with a Cokin P103 +3 closeup filter. Settings were f/14 and 1/200 sec I think. The macro capability is quite impressive once the lens is stepped down past f/14 or so.
