Bokeh Bonanza!
Lens: Sigma 70-300mm APO DG Macro Camera: K-30 Photo Location: Jordan Valley, Oregon ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/3000s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: Dewman, 07-31-2017, 02:43 PM

The extreme bokeh was a result of the sun reflecting off of the ripples of the Jordan River flowing directly behind the clump of weeds. Shooting with the Sigma 70-300mm lens set on 300mm and the 1:2 macro setting produces some amazing results.

Doing well. I've been in recovery for the past few months due to some health issues, but I think things are under control.

Loads of very "nervous" looking bokeh, beautifully captured, well done indeed.
