Worth the shot!

My ongoing Fungus as Art series continues with photos from Cooper Lake State Park.  I took my time setting up the shot with my tripod and I opted for f/32.  In the future I’ll go less extreme with f/16.

Worth the shot! Worth the shot! Worth the shot!

The photo below gives you perspective of the tree stump I was photographing and the challenge of avoiding poison ivy on my clothes, skin and tripod. (Translation:  my photos would have been better without the poison ivy getting in my way.)

Worth the shot!

Camera:  Canon EOS 5D Mark II (Big Bertha), the last photo was taken with a Canon PowerShot G16
Lens:  My beloved 100 mm macro lens (Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L macro IS)
Equipment:  Manfrotto MK190XPRO3-BHQ2 Tripod
Date:  July 2016
Notes:  Dress appropriately for outdoor explorations.  Have a good doctor that can provide the necessary treatment for poison ivy.  (So far, it looks like I’m in the clear.)
