The dandelions have died back and right after this happens the red clover start to appear all over the place here in Vermont. I actually consider both more than just weeds and I love their structures as a photographic subject. I happened to see this brand new one popping out of the ground and thought it would make a great photo-op with the macro lens!
As with any macro lens and coupled with a smart phone camera these small subjects can be difficult to capture in even the slightest breeze. My shaky hands don’t help either but after several attempts I managed to capture the above image. I gave this image the black and white treatment with a pretty extreme vignette because I really wanted the middle of the bloom to stand out. I also added in some film grain for some texture to it….Enjoy!
