Around noon I ventured out to the backyard to take pictures. Yes, this is generally a daily occupation – but things can change so quickly! What was a bud yesterday may be a flower today! I noticed this sunflower on the side of the house was absolutely beautiful. The only problem – it’s about 8 foot tall! I had my macro lens on the camera and thought if I stood on my toes and reached as high as I could, perhaps I could get some shots. So that’s precisely what I did.
I couldn’t see what I was actually shooting.
It was more of a “try to stand as still as possible, point the camera, hold the button down half way until it automatically focuses – and shoot!”
They weren’t too bad – but what if I were closer?
So I brought out a step-stool – and this is what I got!
I can see why so many people love sunflowers – from a distance they are tall, lovely flowers with a huge ‘sun’ flower at the top! But the closer you get the more there is to experience and love about this wonderful flower!
