I guess I have liked photographing flowers for years - but not only flowers.
I just got myself a new lens - for general walkabout. I suppose this is part of
my lens evolution - a Nikon 16 - 85 which will basically replace the Sigma 17 - 70. However - the Sigma does go quite a lot closer - so I will keep it untill I get around to purchasing a dedicated macro
Meanwhile - close ups - even if not macro - are quite pleasing it seems
This is one of my first shots with the new lens....similar to one I took the other day on the Sigma:
(resized and framed)
I've attached another rose photo; black and white this time.
Can anyone tell me how to embed my photos within the entry?
I've seen how to attach and post a link but... do I need to use HTML?:rolleyes:
Your photos are great, Geoff!
If you want your photo within your entry you will need a host site - a photo
site such as Photobucket. Once you have uploaded some images you can copy
the address easily and paste it in your text with [img] before and [/img] after
and it should work OK
(Try to resize to no higher than around 570 and no wider than 900)
Ah, okay. I do have a host website- Shutterfly but when I did the img before and after thing, it just put the link there. I think maybe I copied the wrong link. I'll try again later.
Thanks for the tips!!

Faisel - that's an amazing looking bud, is it really that colour??
Here's a tricky one I took today in the rain - tricky as the colour
is so hard to nail!
~ and a close up of one bloom
these actually have lighter tips - it's not due to the light...
Raining today - so it was wet out there!!
