Dead Flower

Dont you just love it when your walking along (admittedly in a cemetery) and you go “Hey, that dead looking flower is pretty cool, I just happen to have an extension tube  and a 50mm on my F5, This could be a cool image”

And it was True Story

I have always enjoyed playing round with macro lenses (in this case extension tubes) and find that you usually dont get interesting images unless you spend a bit of time looking for different angles. Both these images were shot underneath so you dont get the cliche’d looking straight down on the rose (yawn) shot.
