So here are the remaining photos that I took on our hike a few weeks ago. I loved the reflections the trees made in the lakes, and all the wildflowers that were still in bloom.
Still learning to which aperture gives me the look I like when I am doing close-ups of flowers. I like the large aperture and the isolation of the flower it provides, but then the whole flower sometimes is not in focus. So I found between f4 and f7.1 gave me the look I wanted. If the flower was relatively flat then I could get away with f1.8-3.2 which gave a better isolation look (bokeh).
Once again was really missing a tripod on some of these shots. I just spent some money on a better tripod so I’ll be more prone to use it.
Enjoy these photos, and as always any comments or suggestions are welcome.
