Autumn is here
I took a stroll in the forest since the color on the leaves are amazing this time of the year. I took some shoots with Canon 70D and Canon 24-105mm L lens.

Raindrops and crowns
Practicing speed? Then taking pictures of raindrops is a good way to practice to take the picture at the right time. You might have to take 100’s of pictures but you will at least get few good ones. I am practicing for a marathon that will take place tomorrow, I will be the sport photographer. When I went to see the path they are going to run I came across a little dripping waterfall. It is a source for iron water. The wall is orange because of all the iron in the water. It gave a nice background color to the pictures I am about to show you.
When the drops hit the ground waves and crowns will be formed. If you can capture those you can have amazing pictures. I also like to keep the funny looking creations that is made after the drop has hit the ground, I am showing one of those in the picture collage below.
All these pictures are taken handheld with Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro lens and Canon 70D. It is taken without flash, the only light used was the sunlight.

Don’t want to bug you…
…but it is summer and it is a great time for macro.
Wherever you go you will find a insect, weather you like it or not. The bugs are easier to spot and there are more chances to take those nice macro shots.
I found a nice looking creature when I was out walking. I found a colorful orange/black striped bug called Graphosoma lineatum in Latin. It probably have several names in different languages. It was easy to work with the bug because it was completely still and staring at me. It made a good pose on that stone too. When the bug had enough it just walked away.
The picture was taken with Canon 70D and the Tamron 90mm f2.8 lens. The picture has the following setup f/11, ISO 2000 and 1/160 sec.
