The light was just right to capture this new bud with a dramatic, nearly black background. The flower was found in a wonderful, well tended local park called “Ways Garden”, in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Notice the “sugar coated” appearance on parts of the bud.

This was shot with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens, 1/3000th sec. @ f/4. The ISO was set to 400 and a Manfrotto tripod was used.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.
