  1. The simple beauty of this capture is breathtaking! You are a master of macro and bokeh!

    • That’s so nice, Cheryl. I took that shot with a 200 f2.8 at its closest focus, something like 6 feet. So these were very tall grasses fronting a sunrise through very distant trees. It ends up looking like a macro shot, with that same compression of depth of field and big round bokeh, but without a macro lens. It is still very simple, though, despite all my f-stop palaver. 🙂

      • f-stop palaver is fine with me … just tell me you had to use a tripod for that crispness in the foreground! 🙂 Skinny wrists here … my 300 nearly breaks ’em.

        • I’m too impatient for a tripod. I’ve got one, but by the time I’ve got the shot composed, I’ve lost interest. 🙂 For a shot like this one, I’m kneeling in the grass and have the ground available to my elbows as a tripod.
