Still working through macro pictures and had too much fun editing these. Haven't gotten so many dandy pictures I like in a while.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Thanks for looking!
Les - and the dandelion wars begin. ;-)
I really like the composition on 2, 3 and 7. Nice detail, nice dof and I like the water droplets in 2 and 3 especially. Looks like you're having a lot of fun with that macro lens. Fish (Ruth) showed some stuff with an extension tube AND a macro lens, which sounds like an interesting idea, but I haven't tried it yet.

I would... but this is a macro I bought for work (canon mount). So I'd have to drop the money for my own personal one (which I honestly wouldn't mind doing, but I've got a few other more important matters than a new macro lens at the moment. One of which is our Anniversary vacation to Savannah, GA. Second is life in general ;-)

They kinda remind me of the 4th of July fireworks. I love macro lenses.
Life in general seems to be cropping up all over the place.
The first one really threw me. My first thought was there wasn't any focal point. Then I really looked and started enjoying it. Well done!!
- Quack! Quack!

Les - Ah, yes, Savannah - one of my favorite cities and an excellent choice for an anniversary trip. I can't wait to see the pictures. Are you going soon while the azaelas are blooming?
I've heard a lot of people say they really enjoy visiting Savannah. It fit some of our requirements for our vacation: We can drive to it in 6-8 hours, it's a nice place to go, it's on the East coast, and it has things that both of us will enjoy without boring the other (enough history stuff to keep him entertained while I'm taking pictures ;-)
When are the Azaelas blooming dub? Our anniversary is April 22 and we'll be in Savannah most of the week? We're looking at driving in the Saturday before (April 16) and staying Sunday-Thursday and driving back home Friday (Apr. 22...) so that we have two days at home before going back to work.
At the duck" When I took that picture i thought it was a good idea and would be out of the box. Then when I was editing it I nearly threw it out. Converting it to b&w saved it and then I started a theme of converting the whole set to b&w. I'm thinking of printing the series in 5x7s to be hung together.
Les - it sort of depends on the weather but I think they generally bloom in late March and last for a couple of weeks. You'll probably miss most of them. There is definitely a lot of history there, though. Stop by the visitor center and ask for a book about the history of all the historical district squares. Or go online to the chamber of commerce and get brochures sent. I think the first few squares were laid out in the 1730s. There was also a lot going on there in the Revolutionary War and also in the Civil War, and the Colonial Park Cemetary has a lot of historic headstones. You'll love the old squares with the live oaks and Spanish moss and also the old houses. There are a lot of cool old bed and breakfast places in the historical district to stay in, too. And if you can get into one of the old house gardens on a tour, go for it.
We've been doing a little research online. I haven't been able to find where I can have brochures sent to me though (edit: I finally found brochures I can buy if I'm "relocating" to savannah but I can't request the free visitor's guide online.) We're definitley going to visit some of the squares and cemetaries and Historical landmarks(and live oaks was another requirement Michael had for our vacation spot). And I think we're planning at least one day on a beach. We'll probably do what we did in Washington. Have one or two places we absolutely have to go to and then the rest of the time we'll plan the night before what we're doing the next day. At least here we won't have to think about how many hours of driving we'll need to do to stay on track for leaving :-D
And before I forget, SMOOOOOOOOOOOOCH SG!
This set absolutely rocks!! Very nicely done.

Les - beach is Tybee Island about 18 miles downriver
Great set! I was just walking around my yard looking at the dandylions and thinking maybe I should try to photograph them, then I came in and saw your post. :) Love the ones with the water drops on them!
Have fun in Savannah! I was *almost* going to go there this weekend with my friend, but then found out my husband had already made others plans for us this weekend.
- Just me
These are very nice! I like the idea of hanging the set in 5x7 frames - cool. My fav is #2.
I'll admit I didn't take the time to read everyone's comments so to avoid the risk of sounding redundant I'll just say, I love them all! Especially #2 : )
- Inspired by nature
really nice macro shots and I like how they look in B&W. Have fun on your vacation.
Haven't seen any dandylions here yet. our yard is graveled so I get my wildflower (weed) pictures at different locations and my dandylion pictures up at the college. Maybe they are weeding them out?
- desert flower
your a dandi ...................... I felt the same way about your first shot but in a blink of an eye, it kind of drew me into the center. Nice work Les.
