May 31

We went to Ocean Shores today, not that you can tell by this photo. I spent an hour taking photos of the ocean, which was very gray, it was so overcast today. I ended up not liking any of them. This flower was growing in the dunes on our walk out to the ocean. I only took the one photo of it, just for fun, and ended up really liking it. It's a tallish flower, and I used the widest aperture I could. At 55mm and focusing at the top of the flower, the lower petals fall out of focus quickly. Photos like this remind me that I'm still on my way up the learning curve. I had no idea how neat this effect would look!  f/5.6, 1/125, 55mm.
