Macro Moments: Week 33

I had a very cooperative subject for this week’s challenge, a Wanderer Butterfly pupa with lovely glistening gold trim.

I have discovered that even if I have my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 set to iA (intelligent auto) I can still find out the settings used. The shot was taken at f/3.3, 1/320, ISO 80, focal length 4mm. I might be misunderstanding the focal length but it seems to me that must be the depth of field.

I have lightened the photo a bit and also applied some unsharp mask using an old version of Photoshop Elements.

WPC: The Road Taken

road

The Gibb River Road is a 660 km track from Kununurra, near Western Australia’s eastern border with the Northern Territory, to Derby on the west coast. Anyone wanting to be considered a real outback traveller must have “done the Gibb”. After about 100 kms of bone shattering corrugations I decided I couldn’t face another 500kms, I was on holiday and thought that I was supposed to be enjoying myself so for me “the Gibb” is a road taken for just a while!
