Gerbera

©Jane Chesebrough

I bought this beautiful Gerbera to put under water but did not get my telephoto lens so put it in water the regular way.I look photos using a lamp and thought the effect was pleasant. I cropped it a little because it had that “pinched” look with the petals right at the edges . Shot at an aperture of  f/5.6  at a slower shutter speed and hand-held the camera. This morning I checked my calls and my lens has arrived-been a month! Immediately after work I headed to the park and will post today’s results later. For now, here’s to the promise of spring and new growth. 🙂

    • Thank you! I worried that it was too dark, but was so drawn to that exposure that I chose that particular photo for the blog. You reinforced my decision. Jane
