Thanks Tom. This was the first time I really played around with my 50mm. I'm thinking it is everything I've heard about it.Very nice shot, love the lighting and bokeh
Thank you dossy. Charleston Falls was the location I was at, not the variety of Columbine. Not sure what variety this is. I'll have to look at the ID boards a littler closer next time I am there. This area was formed by glaciers, as were many of the unique geological features around the area. Some of the plants that thrive in these areas were deposited here by the glaciers and came from areas further north. It makes many varieties unique to this area.I have never seen that plant, Mike. It's really a beautiful shot of a very interesting flower!
Thanks Rob. It is a beautiful place. Lots of diversity, well maintained trails. The falls were flowing quite nicely. I was shooting handheld, so I didn't get any real keepers of the falls themselves. I might go back early one morning when it should be less crowded and set up to shoot the falls.Mike,
I've been to Charleston Falls. It's north of Huber Heights. I've been trying to go back because the recent rains will help the waterfall.
Thanks Bob. I've since seen that same Columbine at two other locations; all are remnants of the glacial periods. The 50 is definitely fun. I kinda like having to move my feet to zoom. Takes me back to the film days. :tongue:Nice one, Mike -- great color and composition. [That 50 is a terrific lens. I've had mine for only a couple of months, but it took only a couple of days for it to "grow fast" to my camera.:smile:]
