Macro Monday

Ok, if you follow me at all you know I just returned from leading a workshop in The Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Parks.  Everyone had an absolute blast!  

I know you are probably expecting some grand landscape images...and they are coming, but today I wanted to share a macro image I made while in the Tetons.  

ISO 100, 90mm, F/5.6 @ 1/320th second

This is a wildflower called Lupine.  Lupine is a gorgeous wildflower that looks great in bunches, especially when placed in front of the Teton Range. ;)

I knew we would come across several good plants so I wanted to capture a macro image of it that I would be proud of.  I think this one was my favorite.  I liked the composition of this image as well as the blurred background I was able to get using the F/5.6 aperture.  The morning dew still on the flowers just added to the number of reasons I liked this one.

Image captured with my Sony A7R, Metabones Adapter and Tamron SP 90mm Di 1:1 Macro Lens.  I had this rig mounted atop my Vanguard Alta Pro 283CT Tripod with BBH-200 Ballhead.
