Thank you, Jim. I'm enjoying it.Very nice, Terri. You're getting some good mileage out of that new (to you) 105 micro.
Thank you, Klaus. It's going to be a fun lens, surely to become a favorite of mine.Terri, welcome to the 52-weeks challenge.
Looking to your stunning pictures I realized you're using the 105mm micro very well.
Your closeup of the purple flowers on the stalk is wonderful. What flowers are those--I am just learningWeek 26. It has been a very rainy week. I got some photos of some very soggy flowers in my yard some taken before the second half of the year started. I may make another post later on because July 4th is coming up and we have some family events planned and those can be for week 27 along with the rest of you. Just wanted to populate my new thread!!View attachment 1664794View attachment 1664795View attachment 1664796View attachment 1664797View attachment 1664798View attachment 1664799View attachment 1664800View attachment 1664801
Terri, I know it's difficult to shoot by night moving subjects.Week 27. Some July 4th fun. Idaho Falls has a huge fireworks display every year that brings in many, many people from out of town. Of course, this year it was cancelled. So the smaller suburb I live in sponsored a smaller display. The catch was that they just told everyone to watch from their front yards. They wouldn't tell us where they would be shooting them off. My daughter got a little inside info and we knew the general location and went to a school ground we thought would be nearby. There was only one other family there and we definitely kept our social distance from them. The kids played with sparklers and glow sticks while we waited and I tried to see if I could get any photos with my Z6 and 50 f1.8 S lens handheld while we waited. Got a couple worth keeping. It was a fun experiment.View attachment 1665195View attachment 1665196View attachment 1665197
