Himalayan flower

One of the very few times when I could pull out my macro lens and indulge in my hobby of shooting flowers. The problem with switching lenses in Nepal was that it was often windy and sometimes dusty, and you run the risk of getting dust in the camera if you switch lenses in these conditions. This was taken at an aperture of f/11 to get just the right amount of depth-of-field to cover the flower and my flash was used off-camera to provide the lighting. Lighting always looks more natural when you position your flash above the subject, rather than positioning directly in front. Nikon D200, AF-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 Posted by Picasa
