Here is an older pic, made under an umbrella, along the side of the road, just outside Algonquin Park.
Canon 5D, 180mm Macro. My ‘creative’ lens. Used mostly for selective focus images.
As far as lenses are concerned: if you want super selective-focus images (Pictorial category!), the magic words that describe the lens are: long, close, and wide open.
It has a bit of the Christmas spirit. In my recent stuff from Namibia very little was reminiscent of Christmas… hoping for a few a flurries on Christmas Eve.
You may have noticed: the red vegetation seems to come from the right upper strong point.
