The story behind the image
Here’s a bit of hope in the middle of the dark period (on the Northern hemisphere) – a nice macro shot of a sunflower.
I received my (then new) Canon EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens earlier that day and wanted to do just a couple of test shots, nothing serious. Easy! Just go to the garden and see what’s interesting. I noticed the sunflower and thought it would be great to have a yellow dominated image with some copyspace. I could have reduced the ISO further but heck, it really does not matter and I love the result anyway.
