Spring at Longwood
Today Steve Dembo and I made a quick run up to Longwood. The fragrance display is up and the place looks great as always. There was not too much traffic until the kids arrived. After walking around a little to see what was on display, I fell in love with the large pastel blue columbines and made some extreme macro images with my 200mm fitted wit a 52 mm extension tube.
The fans were running like crazy and getting some still and shaded subjects required patience, but I was determined...I think columbines are the ultimate graceful spring flower. We had a nice lunch and because it was sooooo windy we went home. I had hoped to do some tulip shooting but it just wasn't the right conditions.
