A Weekend Diary

…words and images from England's green and pleasant land…

Some Hampshire nature macros…

All the photos below were taken during the past week in Hampshire, and were taken with a Sony Cybershot DSC-S930 compact camera, as I didn’t have my default compact (a Canon Powershot SX150 IS) with me all week. For general photography, I prefer the Canon, but I have to say that I much prefer the Sony when it comes to macro photography, hence its use for these pictures…

Not sure what these are, but I like the combination of brown and yellow with a green background :).

Some good depth-of-field separation between foreground and background, and a bit of bokeh as well ;)...

Definitely a pine cone of some sort ;)…
