Sublime and Beautiful Sunday a walk with my Macro lens

Sublime and Beautiful Sunday a walk with my Macro lens

This post is for #SublimeSunday is inspired by @c0ff33a and #BeautifulSunday is initiated by @ace108.

For this weeks post I have been motivated by a few posts I have seen recently of people sharing macro images, so I decided to take a stroll during the day around the Acushnet sawmill with my 90MM macro lens and see what I could get, Let me start this post with probably my favorite image of the ones I took that walk, the wild flowers and a bee doing what bees do and collecting pollen and helping flowers to spread.

Its been ages since I took a walk with my macro lens, and since it was a cooler day around 85F ( 30 Celcius) and not to windy I thought it was a good day to head out during the day for a change and try out using the macro lens again, and I will admit I had forgotten what settings work best with this lens for these shots so it was a bit of trial and error on this walk trying different settings so I could check them out when I got home and see what settings worked best, so I will say these are perhaps not all the best of shots but was fun taking them.

NOw you may wonder why I want till I get home to check the images and settings I used, I do look at the photos on the screen of my camera, and make adjustments, but I do find often what you see on the viewfinder or screen on the camera, look better than how they appear larger on the screen of my computer, in fact I will say I thought i had got better shots than I actually did as I was walking around LOL

Like I did notice one of these spiders when taking the images I didn't noticed the other one, and didn't really nail the focus for this image

Another flower growing wild on the side of the trail many of these flowers were dried out and withered from the hot days we have had recently but this one was hanging in there

it's hard indeed to see the sharpness on the viewfinder with macro even with steadyshot with the normal macro lens i always try to go for f8 to get more details.
with the ultra macro lens it's max f8 cause you start to lose sharpness.
and i always go for Manual Focus with macro.
have a great weekend

I often blame the wind when I don't take a macro, but for most macros I have to get down to the ground and I'm just too lazy 😉 !LOLZ

Hello, sir. Looks like you really enjoyed your Sunday walk. There are plenty of macro shots you've managed to capture, and they're all simply stunning.

I always do manual with the macro, but, you know my skills are less than stellar. :) I love photographing flowers, I think it all started because they didn't move too much and they were very forgiving in so many ways.

I'll be honest. Looking through the viewfinder doesn't work that well for me as I never see what I am really getting. So, I usually take a couple of shots with different angles. I actually like the second to last shot best, The dead flower against the vibrant green. There really is beauty in the demise of things.

Great capture on the bee. I always have such a hard time with them!

Have a beautiful Sunday, my friend!

I often use manual and try different angles and different settings taking macros then don’t do any for months and forget the settings that worked best lol

Macro photography is something our naked eye can't see in details, but with this art you have brought some amazing colors to our eyes with absolute details.

Bravo!
