Lavender macro by psychographer

Lavender macro

I hadn't managed to take a photo today as I've been really busy so when I saw the crescent moon behind the trees I thought it would be a good one to try...after all my last moon shot was ok! So I wander down the garden with my tripod in the dark and get scared by all the animal noises I can hear and manage to take several rubbish shots. Apparently it really does matter what sort of tripod you have. Mine has a problem when I have the zoom lens attached to my camera and I'm taking long exposure shots. My camera is too heavy for the tripod and it won't hold it still. So instead here's a piece of lavender!!

Thanks for all your comments on yesterday's shot. Middle son had a good first day at work :o)
This made me laugh, I didn't think (yet) about taking a pic of dry lavender :-) But I like the tones and DOF!

nice shot, my tripod is much the same, it is broken and the camera wobbles around, and can definitely relate to being scared by the animal noises too :)

Great macro shot, looks so soft.
A tip on shooting the Moon, is it is daylight on the Moon, I always shoot in manual mode and ignore the light reading and shoot and adjust on the fly. All the Moon shots I have posted here were hand held.

this is a great idea... beautifully done and composed.

The tripod story sounded very familiar!!! (2)... my camera fell on the floor one time because of this :(

Lovely macro, I too need a new, and much stronger, tripod ... Plus a spirit level so I don't have to spend ages straightening everything in PS afterwards!
