Spring in the Jungle, Columbia MO
The spring colors are vibrant after a rainy week here in Columbia. I get the feeling like I'm in a jungle when hiking through the woods at Grindstone Nature Area.
This is a single exposure taken with my Canon EF 50mm f/1.4. This lens always impresses me with its sharpness, especially when stopping down to f/2.8 and beyond. I almost always use a tripod when I'm doing anything other than people photography. I love the workout I get from hiking with my big camera on a big tripod. Beyond the photographic benefits, one unique feature is that you can use the fully extended tripod legs to knock down spiderwebs before you run into them! My wife loves that feature!
