Default Grasses in the 'golden-hour' via 600mm macro

G'day all

Had a bit of fun the other day with the X-s1 on max zoom [625mm] and in camera-macro mode. It was in the last 15 minutes of the day, and the sun was changing to that lovely golden colour

Hope you enjoy them

1- Flowers of a roadside weed

exif = Fuji X-s1; 1/250s x f5,6, EV -1; 625mm [FF equiv]; iso=640;

2- grass seed head moving slightly in the breeze

exif = Fuji X-s1; 1/500s x f5,6, EV -1; 625mm [FF equiv]; iso=800;

3-

exif = Fuji X-s1; 1/340s x f5,6, EV -1; 625mm [FF equiv]; iso=800;

4-

exif = Fuji X-s1; 1/250s x f5,6, EV -1; 625mm [FF equiv]; iso=640;


As always, comments welcome
Phil

Nice shots and very interesting that they were taken at 625mm. How far away from the grass were you in each shot?

Splendid lighting indeed and nice bokeh on all of them.

Closer than I would have guessed.

Beautiful captures! I just love that light. No substitute for chasing the light!

G'day Phil, I like your use of the 600mm as a macro. I also like to use my 840mm telescope as a digiscope based macro. This morning, I decided to try a ridiculous set-up which produced 100X. This image is of the top of a 60 foot tall Cedar Elm's 1 inch leaves at a line of sight distance of 100 meters. My scope has a fixed f# of 13.3 and yet the sun was sufficient to auto set the speed of my point and shoot at 1/200th.

G'day me ol' mate

Geez yer a bluddy showoff -

100x magnification ... amazing how things have changed over the years
I used to think that binoculars - 8 x 40 or 12 x 50 jigged onto the front of a camera lens was the antz pantz

Then I got a 1000mm Sigma for wildlife and thought that a 20x increase over the original 50mm std lens was something. Now we have P&S superzooms that claim a 1000mm equivalent

and here's you with a 100x setup in your back yard - damn

Phil
