Lets see your early spring photos!
Posted By: dws1117, 03-04-2008, 11:29 AM

Spring is springing here is south east Texas, USA! Today is sunny, very windy and a pleasant 59 degrees. Here are some pictures of the cottonwood tree in my back yard.

Now I'd like to see your early spring shots.

Tulip Fields in La Conner

The Tulips are just starting to color up. Yo can see by the soil that it has been very damp and cold.

(repost from another thread - it's very appropriate here)

I bought my Vivitar Series 1 105 f/2.5 this winter. In Minnesota, the macro possibilities in winter
amount to shots of coins, marbles on the counter, random stuff pulled out of the junk
drawer, birdseed. Not what you'd call... inspirational.

Today, I got home from work, and it was 55 degrees and sunny - but incredibly windy -
our April equivalent of balmy & beautiful. Wife was out back with the little guy, and she
pointed out a small patch of purple flowers poking up through last fall's dead stuff. Literally,
the only living, colorful thing in the back yard. I went and got the Viv, not expecting much -
never shot any serious macro before, it was super windy, and I didn't have a tripod. Figured
I'd just take look at 1-2 and 1-1 magnification, colors, DOF, basically just get a feel for the Viv.

To my surprise I was able to get off shot after shot of more than acceptable 1-2 shots, and
even a few 1-1 shots - on a windy day, handheld, sitting in the grass.

I'm amazed at this lens right now - and it's moved into a temporary lead for my favorite.


Here's a 1-2 (or 3?) snapshot, handheld, jpeg:

Very nice as always. Surprisingly I'm out of flower shot. Ok that's not completely accurate. There is a few hundred still on the computer, but they need some work.
