Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

I experimented today when I had the chance, to photograph these Lilies in different types of lighting depending on the time of day. I found it worked best this evening at 7:00 PM when the sun was going down and set my camera on night portrait with flash. Early morning light would have worked out fine too or on an overcast day. I had the tripod on higher ground with the camera angled so that you can see the insides of the flowers. I wanted to show just how big these Lilies have grown. I am standing to the side of them for scale and you can see the tallest Lily on the other end is taller than I am. With all of the rain we've had the plant is beginning to remind me of a tree. We have had these Perennial flowers planted from bulbs, for a number of years but I don't remember them being as prolific or as beautiful as they are this year.

I love the beauty of flowers and colors in nature and decided since this was getting more comments and faves than another one I had posted earlier for the theme I thought this might fit better for a favorite place.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    Thank you all for your kind response....With lots of rain that we've had the mosquitoes and
    gnats were biting me viciously on this set up and they seem to know when you can't swat them away:)
