And finally my last purple flower of this little series. It looks like anemone to me, I am probably wrong in my assumption. I like the contrast of the two shades of purple from the dark stamens and anthers against the lilac petals

Thanks for calling in to my wee blog 🙂

I used to have some of these in my garden before we moved. They were the first flowers I experimented with using macro extension tubes. Three threaded rings of different sizes that attached directly to the barrel and could form one longer tube. This probably messed up my sensor; they attach at the lens mount with nothing to protect it from dust etc. Such naivety. The tubes; the more you add, the bigger the image.  That post was deleted some time ago when I had clear out after making a mistake on uploading to the web, people could download your full size images and potentially infringe copyright. I upload all my at around 600 x 300 pixels with a watermark. These were photographed with EF Canon 100mm F2.8 L Macro lens

I haven’t a clue what they are called however I photographed it in my parents garden during the Easter weekend.

I was demonstrating composition and shallow depth of field to my nephew who is professing an interest in photography as a GSCE subject.

Droplets of Rain

Droplets of Rain

I was pottering in my garden and decided to take a picture of these raindrops on the underside of a smoke bush leaf I had recently pruned from the front of the house. We had a short shower of rain and I could clearly see the epidermis layer, with good cell detail. I chose to shoot f2.8 and focus on the vein where the raindrops had fallen, and liked the magnification the water has created on the larger drop. As a result on the wide aperture a bokeh effect or vignetting has formed either side of the focal line. The smoke bush leaf on its sunny side up is a rich wine colour.
