I’ve had another rainy day in the UK, and rather than being outside with my camera, I’ve been working through some images from Maui on my computer (in the dry!)…

Macro Flowers – Springtime in England

The blue bells are almost finished but some are still perfect. The wild pink Campions are blooming, and the Dandelions are reproducing in the breeze …

I’ve had fun with my Canon Macro lens, its a 100m IS USM, and a beautiful piece of kit when attached to my Canon EOS 40D digital camera. I used it with an extension tube, which enables me to get in even closer.  A tripod is a must, and the cable shutter release makes shooting low shots easier.

These closeup macro photographs were taken in Maui in the back garden, and I am very happy with my results. I think I am hooked. The weather has been very calm, with a slight cloud cover (which is perfect lighting) and ideally not a single breath of wind.
