Re: April 2009 Photo Competition: Discussion

The other day I was out crawling on the forest floor in search of spring wildflowers. I needed more than the two hands God blessed me with and so leaned my diffuser against a twig while I finished composing the shot. When I turned around, low and behold, I had a great silhouette.

I grabbed the camera without the macro lens and shot a whole series of these. Data is on the competition thread.

I really don't have many pictures that meet this month's theme.
Then I remembered that I had this one of my son admiring the work of Bradford Washburn
Mr. Washburn was one of the founders of the Boston Museum of Science and became famous for his 1930s aerial photos of the worlds best known peaks and mountains.
