With a finicky Point and Shoot I often end up taking at least three photos of any plant from different angles in an attempt to get at least one of them in focus.
Side views in ‘macro’ mode focus better than head-on views as in these first two shots of this succulent.Changing the angle often means that the light is very different.Pulling back also helps to bring the plant into focus and gives more of an overview.Called the Pasque flower as it often comes into bloom at Easter; it is also known as the Windflower. This super macro shows up all the fuzzy hairs on the purple flower bud.Another angle hopefully produces a more complete story of this flower than just one shot.
While I was taking photos of the Pasque flowers I looked up and saw sunlight hitting the round coppery-coloured leaves of this tree.I moved around the trees trying to capture the spring sunshine through the leaves in a different way.And then I got under a younger version of the same tree and zoomed in trying to capture a single branch against the blue sky.
