Silk Floss

 

  

Beauty is where you find it.  A trite statement but there weren't any obvious photo opportunities at the time this image was captured.  I was slowly walking thru a garden in San Diego in late December and most of the vegetation had succumbed to the typical mild Southern California winter.  I noticed a Silk Floss tree with mostly flowers well past their peak and noticed this beautiful flower and leaf grouping in a beam of sunlight and surrounded by a dark background.

 

I always rip off a number of images from different zoom lengths and even change angles.  I will then go back and re-shoot all of the images a second time.  It's amazing how many times that the second round of images produces a noticeable improvement.

    

The image above was captured on a D2H with 200-400 VR zoom on carbon tripod with ball head.
