Flowers with the Tamron 18-300mm lens

Quick post today. I’m running late but wanted to get something to you. To tell the truth, I’ve been busy knitting, but more on that another day.

At the end of the day we went to Winton Wetlands we found ourselves at the Benalla Botanical Gardens.

Benalla Botanical Gardens

We didn’t spend a lot of time there, but we saw all the roses and decided to take some photos. For me, it was an opportunity to try out the new lens on some flowers. See how close I can get and what sort of photos.

I know most of you know I purchased the Tamron 18-300mm lens for my Fujifilm cameras, and I don’t want to go on too much today. I need to get back to my knitting. 😂😁

Here are some of the images. None of them have been cropped as I didn’t want to show you a false image, so to speak. I mean this is how close you can really get with that lens. I’m really happy, what do you think?

Happy Sunday everyone. Talk soon.

  1. I especially like the pink roses. Is it hard to hold the camera still at 300mm. My only experience of a really long lens was that it was but it may have been more than 300. And fascinated to know what you are knitting.

    1. Thank you RJ, I’m not sure I love roses, but they were there. I actually didn’t find it too bad to hold. I think part of that could be that it isn’t an especially heavy lens, so that helps. I mean it was no harder than doing macro shots hand held. Yeah, maybe it was a longer lens. I will do that post soon, I just need to finish some of the things I’m knitting and then photograph them.
