A Field of Grape Hyacinth (Muscari botryoides)


This photo was taken in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. We had two days that were warm enough for bare feet - now there's a chance of light snow in the forecast! Spring is full of suprises. :)

Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon 180mm f3.5L Macrolens at 180mm, ISO 200, shutter speed 1/200s, aperture f/6.3. Curves adjustments, color balancing.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!

Perdón por no saber el Ingles, pero creo que tus fotos no necesitan idiomas ya que hablan por si sólas, tienes un dominio de luces impresionante y lo que mas me ha llamado la atención es que no sueles usar el iso 100, incluso con velocidades altas, ¿será un truco?. He pasado una hermosa tarde admirando tus trabajos, enhorabuena y a partir de hoy soy un fan tuyo.
Un saludo desde España

Yo tampoco sé el suficiente inglés para escribirte. Hace mucho tiempo visito tu página, es un placer pasear por tus fotos, tienes una especial sensibilidad para captar los momentos del campo. Te felicito. También soy de España.

Your pictures are so beautiful. They remind me of the house I grew up in in Berks County. I googled berks county prints and your sight came up. Thank you so much for taking such beautiful pictures and for helping me remember "home" while I am away.

Wow, I love the color and how you've made it trump by the choice of focus that you've made.

Words fail me as tears fall. I grew up in Riegelsville, NJ. My grandmother always had these growing along the sidewalks and I remember countless hours playing amongst the beautiful flowers as a small child. I was thinking of them earlier today, and here they are.
Your work is beautiful.
