Tiny  field  weed

Uploaded: July 10, 2003


I made this image in an overgrown field down the street from where at about 7pm . It was very overcast with dark clouds. There were occasional gusts of wind with blowing rain.. I used the 70-200 lens and 20mm extension tube. The camera was placed on a mini tabletop tripod and set on the ground. I opened the aperature up to 4.0 . Shutter speed 1/30. 0exposure comp. I took the reading from the light green area of the plant. My focal length with the extension tube attached was 149mm. RAW mode.

Thanks for the comment Colette!!. This type of work is something that I don't usually like to do, but I couldn't let the summer go by without shooting a few wild flowers with my extension tubes. It was a very inspiring experience though, I must admit. #139600

Wonderful shot Donna. By the way, how mini is your tripod? Mine is 10" for the shortest. I still havent used it yet, but plan on it as soon as the rain stops for 5 minutes!! #139677
