One Beautiful Thing: buttercup

Filed under: photography — admin @ 11:12

A simple one this week: a buttercup in the local park.

This little flower was one of thousands, I’m sure; the grass was dotted with little yellow dots as I walked through the park on the way home. I shot a few from straight above, but I didn’t get something I really liked until I lay right down and shot from underneath (and got a muddy arm and leg for my trouble :-)

These are tiny flowers, it took a macro lens and several stacked photos to get the detail on the edge of the petal (don’t know what “stacked” means? Ask in the comments and I’ll detail).

Cloudy day made for perfect colours. Gotta like that!

  1. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
