The View From Down Under
I have not posted to this thread in 4 years! Where does the time go?
I actually took this photo almost 6 years ago when I had just started using my very first DSLR, the mighty Nikon D40. I loved that little camera. At that time, someone on this forum, I will have to go back and search for who it was, gave me some great advice on shooting flowers. He just told me to take shots from angles that we don't normally see. Don't just look down at the flowers in your flower bed because that is how you see them all of the time. Go for something different. Something new to the eye. This is what I came up with on that day six years ago. I was laying on my back in the mulch, looking up from under one of my Iris that I loved to shoot. I stumbled across the image today when sorting through some old files and decided to see what I could do with it. It has problems but I still quite enjoy looking at it from this vantage point.
On the very top petal, barely noticeable, there was the tiniest of spiders.
