I found it difficult because spring flowers stay low to the ground, and I with a bad back don't manage the getting down too well.
Another neighbour has Scillia, another flower which grows even lower. Yikes! I did not nail the focus on this shot, but there is something about it that I like.
On the way back to my place, I decided to photograph our first tulip in our own garden. As it happens, it turned out to be my favourite shot of the morning. How often does it happen that the best shot of an outing is often the unplanned one?
This tulip is not quite the classic tulip shape, almost more like a peony, and is also not yet fully open. It did open later in the day and may deserve another shot at another time.
As I have mentioned previously, I don't find flower macros easy, but at least inside I can put the flowers on a table and also not have to deal with breezes. It's a bit of a challenge for me for sure.
I should take a photo of how I have to set up one of these photos. Maybe next time.
Love all three of these!
Maybe you could bring a folding stool which would hel getting closer to the subject? I have had times when an injury prevented me from getting down. I now try to remember to keep up my exercise for flexibility.
Yes, a small stool. I've been using a low one as I clean out the kitchen cupboards.
gorgeous! I'm still such a sucker for purple and all its shades...
So lovely to see the colours of the flowers after so much snow and ice and deadlooking branches. Hooray for Spring!
Getting down is next to impossible, and I'm growing sanguine about it.
Murphy's law happens every time to me when I want to take photos of butterfly's or bugs on flowers that a breeze always appears from no where lol ! Lovely photos . I hear ya on the getting down low and the odd strange positions one has to be in or on the ground to get those shots, I must look like a right nutter, especially if people could see me half the time lol ! I can get down to the ground getting for those shots but up is hard part lol !. Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !
That would be interesting, to see your set up!
I just don't have the drive this week. I enjoyed your photos, though.
