2006-01-27 - Old Man's Beard

I'm still coming to terms with my new lens. I haven't used it nearly enough yet, but I know what it is capable of, and right now the biggest limiting factor is me and my lack of skill in using this amazing machine. Hopefully that will change with practice...

This photo of an Old Man's Beard plant, or tillandsia usneoides (thanks Google), was taken just as the last rays of sunshine were filtering through. Even at F/2.8 this lens is super sharp but the depth of field is also oh-so-shallow. More focusing practice needed.
