Madison Indiana Photography

” Pastel Stamen “

I thought I might post something a little warmer than I have lately, things have quieted down recently but the cold has returned, this is a shot of a lily stamen shot  in macro mode. I used my Sigma 150 with an additional ext. tube to get the desired result for this image. It was shot 2.8 to get the blurred background along with the soft appearance in the color.

I figure in about another month the temperatures should increase enough to bring on early wildflowers. I don’t think moisture will be a problem this year as we have gotten quite a bit of rain and snow over the winter. Now if the temperatures would start to warm things would be well on their way to spring, I have noticed quite a few geese and cranes flying back north, hopefully that is a good sign.

Hope you enjoy the image it was a nice diversion from the cold winter we are experiencing, thanks for stopping by !!

  12. Very pretty! The colors are “Easter-ey.” Guess I shouldn’t mention that our wildflowers have already been blooming for a couple of weeks though, eh? 😉

  14. I like the colors in this one – I haven’t seen too many that were green – they are usually yellow. Can’t wait for spring either!
