Spring Greens

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: My green world prompt.

Having returned to winter like weather for the past couple of weeks there’s not a lot of signs of spring in this part of Ontario. So here’s some recent greens but not necessarily signs of spring.

As a side note, the first 3 photos were taken on two walks testing a copy of the TTArtisan 35mm f/1.4 lens. Initial impressions are good but I need more time than two short walks to get a feeling for a lens.

Two Of A Kind #3

Two red Daylilies on the South Bruce Peninsula in the summer. Smaller and more delicate than the orange Daylily that is so popular.

One of my photos from the summer when I was using fast portrait lenses to photograph flowers and plants.

This is my day 22 contribution to Becky’s October Squares challenge on the theme of Kind.

Portrait of an Orange Daylily

This is my day 25 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

An Orange Daylily photographed with a fast portrait lens to give a different perspective with very shallow depth of field on the flower.
