    It's a challenge for me now to learn macro photography and I'm glad to have found your blog - it contains lots of beautiful macro things to watch.

  13. Hi david,

    I was pleasantly surprised at the way this photo turned out. It was a hand-held shot, so I wasn't expecting much in terms of clarity. Thanks for your feedback, it's much appreciated.

    Cheers,

    David

  22. Hi aluajala,

    I'm glad you've decided to start macro photography. There's not really much to "learn" so to speak - just set your camera on macro mode and start shooting! You'll pick up the most useful tips by yourself.

    All the best with your photography!

    Cheers,

    David

  26. Hi carin,

    It is nice to go out and look up close at nature sometimes - it is amazing what you can see! Just make sure someone doesn't come along and see you lying flat on the ground talking to a dandelion.....! :D

    Cheers,

    David

  27. Hi lareine,

    I can feel that same atmosphere you seem to have felt - the photo conveys the feeling imperfectly, but in nature the expression is fully realized. Make a wish - and thank God for the beauty of creation!

    Cheers,

    David

  30. Hi sandycarlson,

    I agree - I can never manage to think of these beautiful plants as weeds! Then again, if the definition of a weed is "an unwanted plant" then these certainly aren't weeds. Something to think about..... :)

    Cheers,

    David

  31. Hi june,

    That's interesting, I think I've seen a few other shots close up of dandelions, but never this exact angle either. Thanks for your copmment, hope you have a lovely day.

  33. Hi amy-happy momma,

    That's one of the things I love about digital photography - it's so easy to blow things up and retain perfect detail. My camera is 9MP, so it's quite good for that.

    Cheers,

    David

  35. Hi yellowrose,

    That was one of the beautiful things I only noticed about this plant while looking at the photo - those tiny dimples that add so much to the picture. Thanks for noticing!

    Cheers,

  41. That's a cool shot. I know you'd think I'm being silly but this shot reminds me of Horton (the movie).

    :-)

    Thanks for the visit.

  43. Hi zamejias,

    Hmm, I haven't seen Horton. But one person's interpretation of art is never "silly" - after all, art is all about interpretation and personal feelings!

    Cheers,

  44. Oh my gosh! This is fabulous! I would love to have your macro lens.

  45. My husband hates dandelions! He does lawn care though. :-) In this shot it looks so beautiful! I really love the composition. The weed became a work of art!

  46. Hi Musings,

    As a matter of fact, I shot this with a prosumer digital camera (not an SLR) from about 15cm away. It does have a good macro, but this photo is digitally cropped.

    Cheers,

    David

  47. Hi Angie,

    My father never liked dandelions, and I still tend to think of gardening when I look at them! But they are very beautiful when you see them close up, even if they are weeds.

    Cheers,

    David
