Fading away by Karen Havenaar

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Poppies in the woods.
They are still here, but it’s very clear the blooming is almost over.
I like the shallow DoF, there was a time I didn’t understand why people would take pictures like this instead of everything sharp, but that’s changed a while ago :)

Taken with:
Pentax K-5
smc Pentax-FA 50 mm f1.4
ISO 100 f/1.8 1/250 sec
