Macro Monday ~ Volume 24

On Tuesday I met up with follow CM member and sweet friend, Eileen Critchley. We chose to meet at the Desert Botanical Garden. Unfortunately I do not get too often to visit the garden. My hope is that I will go more often in 2017. This orange poppy was beautiful and in a perfect spot. There were not too many distractions around it, which made it much easier for me to single it out and grab focus on the front petal.

Settings: SS 1/640 - f7.1 - ISO 500 - Tamron Macro Lens

For the most part, my go-to aperture seems to be f7.1. Obviously, in 2017 I need to put more effort in shooting with a different aperture.

Thank you for stopping by today. Until next time, keep smiling :)
