August 17, 2009 – Rose


Monday, August 17, 2009

Remember how I had mentioned last week that I had been trying to think of ideas for how to actually take a decent picture of a rose? I had said that I did manage to come up with a few ideas, and went to play around in the Woodland Park Rose Garden to try them out. Here is the first of many several that you’ll see. (Don’t worry, I won’t show you THAT many.) I thought this one turned out pretty well, and it was just about exactly the picture I had in my mind ahead of time. So.. umm… yay?

If you’re looking for another picture of a rose (Really, who wouldn’t be??) and you want to give someone else’s images a try for once, head on over here.

Enjoy the rest of your Monday, and the first part of your Tuesday as well.

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, Quantaray 70-300 mm lens. 1/640s, f/6.3, ISO 400. Focal length: 300 mm.
