Challenge: Outdoor Macro Shot II (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Challenge entries
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Location: Harlow Carr Gardens, Harrogate
Date: Apr 13, 2013
Aperture: f8
Date Uploaded: Apr 14, 2013

I had real problems shooting for this challenge. I had set aside Saturday afternoon, but it turned out really, really windy. Shooting macro shots of flowers in the wind doesn't really work very well!. I wandered round Harlow Carr gardens, disappointed with how little was actually in flower - the weather here in England has been awfull, and Spring is very, very late. I eventually hit lucky with a stone trough of alpines, which were relatively sheltered from the wind. This flower was my favourite, but I forgot to take a note of its name. It is only about 1cm (just under 1/2 an inch) in diameter.

My favorite shot in this challenge. It's almost like a painting with the vibrant pastels and soft yet clear focus. Splendid!
