You know Summer is officially over when even my weeds are dead! Another tip is when this flower (which always reminded me of flame) looks like it burned out. These were taken in early morning light with my Sigma 28-200. I am still getting used to this lens. It is a pre-owned lens in excellent condition. Sometimes my shots look great, other times, not so great. These ones kind of fell in the middle. The lens creeps easily and I am wondering if it is moving and affecting the focus.
