Roses from my Mothers Garden

Title sounds like a schmaltzy UK drama… With my Dads passing & my Mum being in a carehome, their home is on the market and my last road trip down South was partly to help clear it out. Being Spring their garden is looking stunning, so I shot some photos of my Mums roses…
These were shot with iPhone:

Isn’t this one mesmerizing!! I looked at it for a while before I realised it is upside down..

and a Fuschia!

The iPhone does well, only issue was its close focus is not close… so its easy to take out of focus close photos, when I had to back off a bit, focus & then zoom a bit…

These were shot at dusk, with Canon 5D3 and Zeiss 50mm F1.4 lens wide open:

Totally different feel to the iPhone photos – can’t say any are better due to them being so different but the iPhone does a great job of a quick snapshot without much focus control. Shooting through a fast lens wide open in lower light means totally different approach to composition… Only conclusion: nature is beautiful!

    Stunning pics as per. The Canon pics at dust in particular – perhaps just because it’s something unfamiliar to this iPhone snapper!
