Over my lunch hour I drove to the local botanical gardens to attempt to capture a photo containing 'foreground bokeh'. (This was one of the current DPChallenge photo challenges.)
So there I was, out in the bitter cold, trying to capture a beautiful blur in the photo's foreground with something fantastically in focus in the background. Unsurprisingly, very few had wandered through the gardens and I got a pretty decent workout walking through knee-high snow. Surprisingly (to me) however, there was a lot of beauty.
Also probably unsurprising was my lack of success. It will be interesting to see what other folks enter, even a Google image search did not give me many ideas to emulate. But I figured that flowers make for pretty background bokeh, so maybe if I found something pretty off in the distance then I could get my foreground out-of-focus.
Nope. Not even close.
But I did get a few shots that I liked.
See on and stay warm!
