I posted photographs of two Eastern Red Columbines earlier this year and I thought I would post the last one in the trio of photographs that I took at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin last spring. Columbines are among my favorite flowers. My all-time favorite columbine is the Longspur Columbine that I photographed in Big Bend National Park in April of this year. The shape of these flowers is different than any other and I really enjoy looking at them and studying their details. Macrophotography has opened up a new world for me.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark III using my Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro Lens. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/30th of a second and the ISO set at 800. I used a tripod for stability and my Kirk Focusing Rail to obtain 11 images which I brought together into one image using Photoshop and the focus stacking technique. I then finalized the image in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
