Simple Clicks: Signs of Spring

Spring is here, early and in all its glory.  It’s beautiful, as color starts to return to the earth, the browns slowly sublimated by green until winter’s bleakness is a distant memory.  I spent an hour or so out at Merli Sarnoski one evening last week.  Part of it I just spent sitting in the sun, but for the rest I was playing around with some more macro shots.  Started on the tripod, got sick of how fussy the whole process is (big surprise), so switched to hand-holding.  Then, just for kicks, I removed the extension tubes and shot a few frames with just the Takumar 55mm f/2, including the pano at the end of this post.Macro image of a wildflower at Merli-Sarnoski Park, Carbondale, photographed with a Takumar 55mm f/2 MF lens on the evening of 20 March 2012.
