    Messing around with a few yard weeds. Using the A6000, 28-70mm FF and 16mm Extension tube.

    It is a bit cloudy today and the sun was in a perfect spot. I messed around with the location of the sun, each time getting closer to the center.

    I entered this thread with HIGH expectations. I was pleasantly surprised with your WEED shots. They are very nice indeed.

    aww why's it gotta be shady. in some parts of this country it's actually LEGAL.

    Edit: after reading my post ... Most LEGAL contributions by politicians are Shady. So I stand corrected

    Thanks for reminding me, Nick. I meant to "Woof" all over that last image.

    As for legal weed, come July 1st it'll be legal here in Oregon, and I've already informed my wife that I'll be commandeering half of one of her raised garden beds. Strictly for medicinal purposes, of course. :)
