It was warm and now it’s cold. Below freezing at night again. Rain in the morning, sun in midday, but it never got warm even with the sun out. But, on a more positive note, the sun let me do some close macros of all the blooming orchids plus the Easter lily and the cactus flower. Because I was shooting so tightly with the sun behind the flowers, I balanced the cameraon the table on one edge to stabilize it.
It worked. I can’t hold a camera steady at a 50th of a second these days, but using the table, it was steady enough to get a pretty clear image.
It was an interesting balancing act. Even a mini tripod would have been too tall for these shots. Also, to get enough light in the picture, I had to shoot from below the flower or the center of the flower was too dark. Our house is not bright, even when the sun is out.
