Default Color in the Rain

This was one of my favorite kinds of days. Overcast and a light rain, meaning not nearly as many people for me to have to deal with at the Arboretum as normally would be there on a weekend, so of course I took my E-M5 and three lenses, the 9-18, 14-42II and 75-300 M. Zuikos, along with the Kenko extension tubes for use with the 75-300.



The seasons, they are a changin'..











I've been trying to get this for weeks now, but there's typically too many people all around, but not today..

.......that was a productive day, love the results.

I suppose you relied on an umbrella, it actually RAINED here all day.

Yeah, umbrella in-hand alright. Was a little heavier than just a light mist

Fun though, just about had the place to myself.

These are great Greg. Love the detail in the flower shots.

Great series Greg - really love the details on the rose in the third shot and the Chihuly glass is always great to see, I especially enjoy the ones placed in the garden beds like they grew there just like the other flowers.

Thanks for sharing and glad you made the best of a rainy day!

Thanks, everyone.

the 14-42 M. Zuiko is the most mundane in terms of specs/zoom range, but the one I have is the best performing Olympus standard zoom I've used. It's a good partner with the 75-300 M. Zuiko and the 9-18 and/or 12mm f2 Zuikos make a good ultra wide, with or without speed option.

It also definitely helped cut down on the number of lens changes I had to make while trying to keep an umbrella over the setup.
