There was a crazy thunderstorm today and rained a lot for a short period of time. In fact there was even a rainbow and I did get a picture of. But it’s not the photo of the day. It’s in my photostream if you’re interested. After the rainbow I ran across this snail on my front step, it’s the photo of the day.
Lacking a true macro lens, I popped on my 55-300mm.
Shot in RAW, levels adjusted in Lightroom 4. (Exported to jpeg at 60)
Nikon D5100, 300mm, ISO100, F5.6 1/15sec exposure.
Without the VR on the 55-300mm lens, I never would have been able to get this shot handheld at 1/15th giving me an ISO of 100.
Here are the rules:
1) I have to upload one new, original photo to the blog every day.
2) The photo has to be taken on that day. No using photos taken in previous days.
