A Bad Day With A Camera

Attention to Detail

It was less than twenty minutes before I was to start work for the day and it looked grim outside. The sky was grey, the wind was already coming up again, and the occasional freezing drop of rain spattered against my glasses. I didn’t want to pull a camera out then, but I knew it was going to be a long day at work with little likelihood of a lunch break or free evening to take photos. I needed to find someting.

Wet behind the ears, My Front Yard, Strathmore, AB, 2024-05-02

A wind gust slapped the branch of our Mayday Tree against me and I felt frigid water running down the back of my neck. Water? I looked more closely and all of the leaves were covered with small droplets. The low light and the high wind precluded any shots of water dropets on the Mayday Tree, however. I walked around to the front yard that was somewhat more shielded from the wind and noticed water droplets on the buds of the lilac bush.

It was good enough for me.

Today‚Äôs kit: A Canon EOS R5 with a SMC PENTAX-A 100mm f/2.8 macro lens mounted using a Fotodiox PK-EF lens adapter. A Meike MK-RF-AF1 18mm Metal AF full frame macro extension tube adapter ring was added to the mix to give the macro lens more pull.
