First 'flower' of the season. Since last fall, I've been accumulating gear... lighting, focus rail, extension tubes..... all to try my hand at shooting up the garden. Went out to get the mail, noticed a shingle on the deck. Ooops.... windstorm took a couple tabs off the roof. So up I go this afternoon for a little handy Dan work, and I notice my Bradford Pear tree is juuuuuuust starting to blossom. So after my home fix-it foray, I headed out to snip off some of the blossoms. So far, editing what I felt was the best image, my first results of the spring! Comments welcome.
