Euphorbia Plant

Photograph by Terry Bridges, My Shot

Out this afternoon to see what was "waking up" ... not much yet, but the Euphorbia during late winter is a beautiful red brown. Here the very tips of the plant in macro yield a pleasant shot.

Photo Tip: If shooting outdoors, macro photography is effective on bright days when you don’t have to use a very slow shutter speed. A bright, overcast day works especially well, as it will also light your subject evenly.
