Hello from south central Utah

Hello - Just playing around with a reversed 50mm 1.4 - held in place with my hand... It should be snowing in December, not rain. I found these droplets - kind of fun. In such a remote place, where might I find a quality reverse macro ring or extension tubes? Seems a mixed set of opinions... I just read about the Sigma 70mm f/2.8 macro being very nice... more $ obviously.
Thanks very much.

Hello Bob welcome to PF.
Nice shot. You can usually find the ring on E-bay or you might check KEH B&H and Adorama. I have a Tamron 90 macro that I really like tho it be a bit longer than a 70mm
