California poppies mean Spring! Combined with purple lupines, the mountainsides are a delight to behold. These poppies are in the local botanical garden, but they can show up anywhere. They vary from deep orange to yellow, some with orangey streaks in the center of their golden petals.
Tag: Elicar 55mm Macro
Yesterday the FT-1 attachment for the Nikon 1 arrived. This allows the attachment of F-mount lenses – Nikon and 3rd party – to be used with the Nikon 1. Given that the crop factor is 2.7, my 55mm Elicar Macro becomes a 148mm equivalent. This morning I went out and took a picture of a white rose, the Pope John Paul II, a fragrant, lovely rose. Handheld, manual focus.
