Wow…certainly a view of geraniums I’d never seen before. This is a very geometric middle. Love it!

Thank you. I’d never realised they had that cross in the middle either. My macro lens is opening up a whole new world! Glad you like it!

Interestingly Terry, it’s not cropped. The image is straight out of the camera. The macro lens can get incredibly close up. I love using it.
Actually i had wondered that after I commented. If that’s the case, then nice composition!
I hope don’t botter you the question but, what lense do you use for macro photos?
I like a lot this kind of photos, it make you appreciate the details better.
Hi Angye – it’s no bother at all! The macro lens I use is the AF-S Micro Nikkor 105mm 2.8G, made by Nikon. I use it on a Nikon D750 camera. I really like macro photos too – it gives such an insight into nature that is normally difficult to see.
Lovely Macro image
Thanks Simon. I really appreciate your supportive comments.
How long have you been a photographer,if you don’t mind me asking,i bought my first camera,last week,at 42! Any advice for a newbie,especially protecting the camera in damp,or wet conditions.Many thanks my friend.
I don’t mind you asking at all. I took up photography 15 years ago. I started with a 35mm Nikon film camera. I used to be so disappointed when I got my roll of film developed to discover 99% of the images were rubbish! Digital certainly makes experimentation a lot easier.
What camera have you bought? I think most modern SLRs are fairly rugged to be honest. They won’t necessarily cope with being submerged in water but a bit of damp or light rain shouldn’t be too much of a problem. And they can often take minor knocks and bumps without any issues.
I know when you’ve just spent money on a nice piece of equipment there’s a natural fear of damaging it. But my advice would be get the most compact camera bag that it will fit in, take the camera everywhere you go and take as many pictures as you can.
Is there a particular genre of photography you’re interested in?
Really appreciate your reply,sorry for delay,was out all day till late yesterday,and busy till now! I have just bought a really nice Nikon Coolpix L340.I’m interested as a newbie in pretty much anything.I love nature,trees,animals etc.I am also drawn to photos,or places that have sadly been abandoned,or left to sit,and find it incredible to see how nature takes over.Many thanks for getting back to me,very new to this.
