17 Aug 18 A bit of a variation today in that I believe this is the first time I've shared a B&W macro/close-up. On our drive to Brinnon earlier in the week we passed by a community garden in Quilicene that had as a part of it a section of sunflowers that are not replanted by the community but rather are reseeded naturally. There was a fairly large section of them considering the size of the garden and we stopped on the return leg to shoot for a few minutes. I got a number of images I liked and this one in particular. Of the 6 versions I made, this is my favorite with the straight color being a very close second. What's a bit unusual is that both a good friend from VA who has been with us this week and Jan both picked this version over all the other 5 so this one gets three thumbs up. Not much more to say about it as it is just a shot of a flower in a garden, and one without some kind of insect involved on top of that.
This is straight from the camera save for some cropping off the top and bottom of material that added nothing. Shining Bright Nikon D500; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 250; 1/320 sec @ f / 9.
