“In every drop of water, there is a story of life.” Leena Arif

I’m playing around with my D800E and the 105mm Macro lens.  Since the sprinklers were on in the garden it was a prime opportunity to get some cool water drop pics.  I have alot to learn to maximize the potential of this lens . . . but I was pretty impressed with what I did get.  Can you see my reflection in several of the water droplets?  I had to really decrease the size of this for posting purposes.  These images tend to start out (in RAW) at around 40 mb.  I’m finding I really don’t need to do much post processing other than maybe a tad bit of sharpening.  The SOOC quality is quite stunning.  Coming from a crop factor camera (the D7000), it’s quite incredible.

“raspberry:  n-raspberry [ˈraːzbəri] a type of edible red berry.”  www.thefreedictionary.com

So yesterday I posted a picture of the gorgeous and yummy Salmon Berries that are ripening in the park out back.  This morning I decided to check on my raspberry patch – 50 feet of canes that we’ve planted and nurtured of the last few years.  It’s been so wet, and not much sun lately so I wasn’t expecting to see anything red.  Tons and tons of green berries that are going to provide us with a freezer full of fruit here soon . . . so to my surprise I discovered these two beautiful read delectable’s. They didn’t last long though as my 4yr old Great Nephew happened along and then they were gone!  I’m looking forward to the bounty soon enough . . .

“salmonberry(n.)ˈsæm ənˌbɛr i:    the salmon-colored, edible fruit of a raspberry, Rubus spectabilis, of the Pacific coast of North America.”   http://www.definitions.net

Took the kids for a walk in the park behind our property today . . . first time I’ve been in the park this spring.  It is lush, green and somewhat overgrown with all the rain we’ve had recently.  It was a real treat to find the Salmon-berries ripe and ready to be picked.  Yum!  I took the first shot with my 35mm 1.8 lens ISO 400 and 1/1600 (overcast day and  a steady breeze). Then I added the 20mm Macro Extension Tube for the second shot . . .

“If I saw something in my viewfinder that looked familiar to me, I would do something to shake it up.”   Garry Winogrand

I’m playing around with my new Macro Extension tubes.  I really want to do some Macro Photography because I like the abstractness that can be achieved.  I really didn’t do much to this photo other than boost the clarity a bit.  I used my 35mm 1.8 Prime lens with the 20mm extension tube.  Wow!  I’m kind of blown away with how much detail you can capture in an image . . . so anxious to do some more experimenting!  Can you guess what this is?  (Hint: it is a self portrait)
