Photo 101 Field Trip (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
The fall flowers are out in full bloom at the Halifax Public Gardens, making it the perfect destination for a photo field trip.

One unexpected advantage to photographing this late in the fall is low lethargic the bees get; in the summer you can hardly get your camera up in time before they scurry off, but in the fall, they tend to move slower, and stay at a single flower longer.

The last image I made in this field trip is one of my favorites - it takes full advantage of the shallow depth of field my 150mm macro lens provides - and as an extra bonus, it is an image that totally relies upon colour - something rare for me.
