Default Dogwood and Azealea Time

Stopped by Lee Park last night on my way home and the Dogwood and Azaleas are now popping. The Dogwood is actually behind the azaleas, but this weekend should be very good for shooting them with lots of cloudy skies, so no high contrast light.

late yesterday was definitely nice with the soft light, but it was low enough that f2 or faster was the preferred aperture with the E-P3 and primarily the 45/1.8. Most blooms were too far away to get close enough for the 25/1.4, but I did do this one with the 25 wide open at f1.4..



The rest were with thr 45/1.8..







I did stop down to f2.8 to give myself a little more depth of field with this subject..

Colors are more saturated with the Zuiko lens. Actually, this is something I have noticed about the 25mm...many times colors appear to be a bit washed out.

Greg, great captures, great colour love the focus and framing.
But really, do you have to torture us northerners with rhodos in full blossom? That's just not on.

Thanks for the comments!

Once open up there, I'm sure they'll be much nicer. Down here, the heat starts getting at them pretty quick.

Not too sure about that, we are having late May temperatures in March. We could just blow through the blossom time if this weather keeps up
