3 Lillies


3 Lillies - Phase One XF, IQ3 100mp, 120mm, f/9, 1/25s, ISO 100, 25 frame stack.

Its pretty hot here in San Jose now but it was beautiful at 6 AM this morning.  These three Lillies were already open and with such an obvious composition ready to go, it didn’t take much to convince me to bring out the big camera.  There was a little wind which was a challenge given the slow shutter speed and the 25 frame stack but I mostly got around it by holding a giant piece of plywood on one side to shield against the wind.

Calla and Stream

Calla and Stream - Phase One XF, IQ3 100mp, 40-80 @ 50mm, f/10, 4s, ISO 100.

This was one of the images I ended up making from yesterday morning.  I really wanted to get something with both the rushing water and an isolated Calla.  There weren’t a lot of options and its not my best work but its something.

Emerging

Emerging - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 120mm, f/5.6, 1/6s, ISO 100.

I found a clump of Asiatic Lilies hiding behind another bush in the yard this morning.  Several were open and in ideal condition so I was compelled to bring out the big camera and make some images.  I like how the Stamen and Stigma of the Lily just seem to emerge from the depths.

The Leopardess


The Leopardess - 1D4, 500mm, f/6.3, 1/320s, ISO 800.

I got up early and couldn’t sleep and so I worked on this image I made over 6 years ago in Tanzania.  I remember the afternoon well.  We spotted this Leopard up on a tree and she quickly came down, walked around, climbed on some fallen trees and generally looked around.  It also started to rain and we spent a good 45 minutes with her before moving onto a pride of lions.

View to the Ocean


View to the Ocean - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 75-150 @ 115mm, f/11, 20s, ISO 50.

The view of the ocean sitting on that bench is so serene first thing in the morning.
