Salvia--Furrry In Purrrrple
Lens: HD Pentax DA 55-300 Camera: K1-ii Photo Location: Neighbor's Yard ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/80s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: angkymac, 12-06-2021, 06:03 PM

Stood in the street and shot into my neighbor's flower garden with a DA 55-300mm on the K10D.
Zoomed all the way to 300mm (I thought), but the camera recorded as 230.
Left my tripod at home, so had to do this hand-held.
JPG straight from camera (cropped slightly).

A macro lens would certainly beat this, but I just want to share it for what that old equipment can still do.
I am quite surprised at what that "old" technology is able to do for shake reduction, focusing, etc.

And, I think I like it just for the "soft, warm, furry feeling in purple" that it gives in front of the other purple blooms.
If nothing else, at least it's fun to look at!
Angky.

I like this! Purple and blue salvia can't be beat. The furry petals and deep rich colors. The K10D renders these kinds of images so nicely. I need to get mine charged up and take it for a spin.

Those purples came out more intensely than I thought they would.
Thanks, Mike!

To think that I just recently learned that salvias exist!
And the K10D did its job so well. (And I thought I had been using the other camera!!! Short term memory going???)
Thanks for the correction, Todd!
