A Fragile World.

3 May

This is my favourite of my photographs at the moment. For those who care about the technical details it was taken using a Canon EOS 50D with a Tamron 70-300mm Tele-Macro lens, an aperture of F5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/1250sec. It was shot in RAW and then initially edited and converted to jpg using the Gimp with the Ufraw plugin. Final editing was done using Showfoto. All of which are free open source software programs.
Dandelion clocks always remind me of childhood for some reason. I suppose that it’s their ephemeral and fragile nature. They teach us that nothing, no matter how beautiful, lasts forever and we should make the most of what life offers us.
