Annette Carr level-classic 4/11/2011 3:16:24 PM

Intoxicating. Simply beautiful. Can you reveal the lens, appeture, and iso? I have yet to get a rose so perfect as this. #9345740

Monnie Ryan 4/11/2011 4:17:45 PM

Thanks, Annette! The metadata isn't on this one so I can't tell you for sure unless I can dig up the original - it's in the archives somewhere. The best I can do for now is say it was taken with my Canon EF 100 f/2.8 macro lens (which I love). #9345808

Being "in the pink" is a condition that's quite appealing right now, when we're literally in the white! As I look out my window, I see a blanket of snow, with more coming down to the tune of another half-dozen inches by the end of the day. In fact, we're getting the best of it; folks around us could see a foot or more. So, I'll take refuge in this colorful rose from the summer gardens at Mill Creek Park! Stay warm and safe, everyone!
