Today’s outdoor challenge: cold wind.
I went home feeling ambivalent about my photos. It’s hard to photograph plants in the wind. But then I examined them on my laptop. Take a look.
I did not use a tripod for the shot below. Everything seemed to stay still long enough for the click of the shutter button.
A close-up of the eye. Admittedly, a tripod would have been useful But I’m happy.
Here’s a shot to give you perspective and to show how I achieved a white background. This area is very pale and sandy. It makes a wonderful backdrop.
