2021—Puff

Late afternoon Saturday at The Ranch, I sat down on a railroad tie to absorb the last daylight views I would have of this paradise for a while. Under my leg was a single dandelion. I changed the image area on my Z6II to square, changed the Picture Control to #18 Graphite, made sure the stem of the dandelion was not visible and shaded the puff with my leg. The aperture was f/3.5 on the Nikkor ZMC 105 mm lens so it was perfect to capture the center sharp and leave the fringes all around the edges fuzzy.
