Early again! I don't think I'm going to have much time for shooting this week, so I'll just assume this will be my best shot.
Nikkor 24-70mm at 44mm
Sun and white reflector for lighting.
Back in the game, think this might be my best and only shot this week. Cropped pic to remove excess sky and give more pleasing look to the picture
Nikon 7100 - Nikkor 18-55.
Focal - 30mm
That is remarkably vibrant. Beautiful scene, Peter.
Thanks Nicole! These colours, just after some rain are difficult to reproduce with modern sensors. Kodak didn't see the need to protect the blue channel from overexposing, so there is much more information in the raw file. Overall the files from any of the DCS bodies are a joy to work with if you used and liked Velvia or Ektachrome VS in the film days.
Peter that looks remarkably like a type of swamp flower we have here.
It's like a lily, and thrives in very damp conditions.
It is a siberian squill in english and is a bulb flower that seems to grow in most conditions, from sand to mulchy soil and from direct sun to full shadow.
