I am still finding pictures that need to be added to some category or another on the Mac & stumbled across these pictures tonight. My fir cone is probably not the most exciting picture but I love the detail right at the top. My other task this weekend is to find the name of this flower that I keep taking pictures of. I remember I was practicing trying to get some blur effect by having the aperture wide open. For years I could never blur pictures correctly using the aperture settings until someone told me to think about how many sheep I wanted in focus! f22 got me 22 sheep in focus, f2.8 got me a whole lot less & after that it all started to come together.
And the name of the flower is? Strelitzia
