You Can't Go Back

Well, not twice. A long Winter and wet Spring produced a flood of Spring flowers here that were quickly over. I passed them one day, no suitable camera, came back a week later, took this. It's good (well, it was certainly popular on Flickr, if that's the same thing), but it would have been better with better skies.

By the time I got back again with a fine sky, the flowers were over.

DoF is an issue here. There was no way I could hope to have everything in focus, so I've let the closest flowers go soft. 25mm f8, which would be 50mm f16 on FF. Perhaps I should have gone f2.8, to make it look more deliberate.

Worth thinking about, because we will try this again next year.
