Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XS, Canon 50mm 1.8 II, ISO 200, f/2.8, 1/320 sec.
  Last Friday as I was leaving my house to go to work, I pulled the camera out of the bag before I got in the car and fired off a few shots of my wife's new flowers. I know that sometimes these macro shots can get kind of redundant, but when it has been 3 weeks since I've been able to get out and go photoging, you'll take what you can get.
  This particular Day Lilly was actually still in the plastic pot prior to being put in the ground on Sunday morning.  The good ol' 50mm does a fantastic job on these macro type shots especially when you hit the sweet spot at f/2.8.
  Got plans to go hiking in the Bald River Gorge on Sunday morning with my friend Tim Owens. I am so excited and can't wait to be near the rushing water of the Bald River.


  1. Not bad for take what you can get.

  2. I think we have all been there. Sometimes I worry I won't have anything left in the archives to post, lol.

    Nice shot BTW. And thanks! I always wondered what these yellow ones were called.
