First of the Tulips

Spring is definitely here, the daffodil’s are on the wane and the tulips are coming forth. To cheer everyone up here is my first tulip of the year, coming out to bloom.

Now as part of a macro exercise I had to put the camera on ‘macro’ mode. All very well and good, but it takes away from one the choice of depth of field, something I think could be improved on the image. The moral of the story is go Priority or Manual mode for me.

  2. It’s a wonderful tulip, John. I love tulips, such colourful happymakers, especially on a rainy Sunday like this.
    Warm regards from Norfolk, Dina
