Was struck by my eyes perception of this root as independent, because I know it is part of the tree. How often & easy are we misled by our senses. 1 w Vivitar (Komine) 55mm 2.8, @ f4.

This does give a remarkable "3D" look.
Really pleasing look of the out of focus areas with crisp detail in the area of focus.
Beautiful image, JT!
Thank you Bart--I like this 1 as well. I have 4 mf, 55mm macros. This & 3 Nikon's. 1 might think, given this 1 is a good deal larger, & in very used shape (I've 2 mint Nikkors), I would dump this one--but I can't do it. I like the ergonomics, half-stop detents, lack of a need for a hood & its rendering. The Nikkors render out-of-focus highlights better IMO--I love my Nikkors too--crazy hobby. :) jt

Sigma 24mm Macro f/2.8

The 24mm focal length has become my go-to for most hiking needs. In foliage season, from higher elevations, landscapes can accrue a kind of other-worldliness.
