Last week I took the macro lens out into the garden for the first time in a while. Spring is certainly upon us.
There seems to be a wet flowers theme developing. The garden ponds brought by heavy rain have drained away and the wind is doing its best to dry out the place, despite occasional showers.
Here’s the pick of this afternoon’s photographic expedition into the garden. I had to go scrambling for the garden text books to identify this plant, Portulaca Grandiflora.
The rain is descending in proverbial bucket loads today as a result of a cyclone hundreds of kilometres north of Brisbane. We can expect the rain to continue falling for at least another couple of days as we watch the impacts of this latest storm come to light.
Up until today, I’ve not ventured out into the rain with the camera. It’s still dark outside despite the fact that it’s mid-morning. Here are the results with no flash and a shutter speed of 1/1250.
