The traditional beauty of the tulip. This tulip was growing in one of the pots in my back garden. I wanted a good bokeh, but without loosing any of the flower’s details. Mounted my macro lens and placed the pot in some good light. Had to take the shot some 2 feet away, since any closer I would have a very shallow depth of field and start loosing flower details.

    Hi Kathy, actually this photo was taken last spring. On the other hand, you can take photos of trees covered with snow, and I can’t :)) Many thanks for the kind comments.
