One Spring Azalea Branch with Bokeh Background by 


I love Azaleas! This is the last of this variety of Azalea blossom that I was able to capture this spring (I miss them already). It is a shame that these gorgeous blooms are so short lived. The photo was taken at the very end of April. I used a wide aperture to create a soft background behind the featured sprig of flowers.

This macro photo was captured with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro prime lens. The shutter speed was 1/500th sec at f/4.5. The camera’s ISO was set to 400. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a remote shutter release.

Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.

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.
