I Am Not the Artist

If you think I did something beyond point and shoot on this photo, you’d be wrong. I credit Mother Nature. But my 70-200mm 2.8 lens played an important role.

The circular green swirls that seem to frame these lilies are actually out-of-focus lilly leaves. And, like so many shots I take, I didn’t see this until I opened the photo on my computer.

These lilies are long gone now, I’m sad to say. In fact many of the flowers in my wife’s garden are waning. Fall is just around the corner and, of course, it offers many opportunities for photographers.

It’s the four or five months of winter that I find challenging. . . .
