One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2014—Blended Moonstone

My roses have exploded into their autumn bloom, a last gasp of sorts before they go dormant. This is Moonstone. Its blossoms are generally so heavy with petals that they turn brown and wilt before fully opening. I don’t think I have ever cut one of its blossoms to bring in until today. Most of its fall blossoms have opened fully and they are quite lovely. This half open bud caught my eye and I clipped it and brought it into the house. Since I hadn’t yet taken my blog photo, I decided this rose would be my subject. I spritzed it with water and decided I’d use my macro lens and try focus stacking again. This shot was created from 37 images so that I could get every part of the rose in focus.

Focal Length 105mm, ISO 100, f/14, 1/3s

  1. Perfect! – the photo looks effortless – the exact opposite of your 37 exposure stack
