These beautiful summer wildflowers were photographed in front of one of the oldest churches in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico. The colors are sumptuous! In a city like Santa Fe, known for its art galleries, its a reminder that the greatest artworks are those provided by our Creator.
Camera: I shot this photo with a Canon Rebel XTi (purchased used on eBay for $50.00), and a classic Tamron 35-135mm F:3.5-4.2 BBAR Adaptall 2 lens (purchased used on eBay for $19.00). This lens has a Pentax K-mount so I purchased an adapter ($8.00 on eBay) to mount it to my Canon body. If you purchase a Pentax K-mount to Canon EF lens mount adapter, be sure to get one with the focus confirmation chip. It helps out when focusing quite a bit. This is a frugal photographer’s camera kit that gets great results! This rose was shot in the morning, in a bit of shade with no wind for best sharpness. This photo was shot at the widest aperture (F:3.5).
