Loving The Extension Tubes!

There are so many cool things outside to take photos of these days. Plants and flowers, bugs, rusty metal yard things in my backyard and more. I have found myself more and more reaching for the extension tubes and the 50mm 1.4. I can get very interesting macros with this set up and I have written about it before and I am sure I will again. One the blog today is a trio of photos from the backyard just a couple days ago.

I need to get back out there and look at the Black-Eyed Susan that had a few blooms ready to
open. When I was out on the deck
yesterday I noticed the hydrangea was full of pretty blue blooms. And the baby Mr. Stripey tomato is getting larger!

The Black-Eyed Susan; shutter speed 1/250, f5, ISO 250, Red Rose; shutter 1/250, f5, ISO 400. Coneflower Bud; shutter 1/160, f5, ISO 400. All were taken with the 50mm and the 21mm extension tube.
