I love living in the countryside, surrounded by beautiful forests. Here are some rural summer impressions from the last 2-3 weeks.

Part 2 soon to come.

Have a nice week everyone!

Today’s picture is inspired by my series called Essential which I created back in 2010 (also to be found on my Portfolio Page) and which long time followers might remember.
This time I chose a different composition though.
In the next days I am going to post an alternative version on my Flickr page.

A few days ago I felt like taking a few macro shots, so I put on my Sigma 105mm 1:2.8 macro prime lens on one of my Nikon DSLRs and just went outside.
That was a good decision as I managed to get some decent pictures (click to enlarge; others to follow in the next weeks).
I really love this lens. In combination with a Nikon body you get an incredible sharpness (sometimes it can be brutal), no post processing required whatsoever in this regard.
When I use it for portraits (headshots) I really have to soften everything (you know what I mean).

BTW: Thanks to all new followers on various Social Media and of course thanks to all those who are still there after so many years.




Organism 1
I was at a friend’s birthday party and luckily I had my favorite lens with me, a nifty fifty macro.
Here are two shots…
As always, you can enlarge them by clicking on them.

And to quote Alan Watts:

“There’s an interdependence between flowers and bees — where there are no flowers there are no bees, and where there are no bees, there are no flowers. They are really one organism. And so in the same way, everything in nature depends on everything else.”
