I recently wrote about the hardy Rosa rugosa also commonly called the Cape Cod Rose. Yesterday I received a new lens that I had ordered my Olympus OMD and naturally I wanted to immediately try it out. Yesterday was also rainy which happens to be the perfect time to photograph flowers and I targeted this Rosa Rugosa. The overcast light allows colors to be rendered vibrantly without harsh highlights and water droplets wonderfully enhance any flower image. I used a relatively low f stop which along with the telephoto focal length isolated flower from the distant background trees. Olympus OMD mounted with [email protected], f5.2, 1/250 s., ISO 500. I like this lens.
