NYBG Flowers

The greenhouse had a chrysanthemum exhibit. Even though the Conservatory was partially closed there was plenty of flowers to photograph in the garden.

    This is a beautiful place! I was only there once and it was a very chilly winter day. The blooms you captured are stunning. What kind of macro lens do you use?!

      Thank you very much. I took most of these with a Nikon D750 with a Tamron 28-300 mm lens. I can fake the look of a Macro with a short F stop. Some I took with my cell phone, a Samsung 10+ shooting Pro which makes DNG files. I do have a Macro lens but it is so heavy I didn’t want to carry it! If I am shooting birds I use a Sigma 150-600 mm. 🙂

        Remarkable! They are wonderful close-ups. I also have a Sigma 150 to 600, but I found it very difficult to get clear hand-held shots. Do you use a tripod or a Mono pod?

          I get good hand held shots with that long lens. I think the image stabilization works well. I try to use as fast a shutter speed as possible. That means I see noise from the higher ISOs but LR cleans it up pretty well.

    Apart from the other flowers you feature, I had no idea one could get chrysanthemums in so many shapes and colours!

    Such interesting and pretty flowers, and you have such stunning photographs. These would be perfect for greetings cards, they’re all so beautiful  ♥

    ❤️❤️❤️ that stringy little flower, I’ve never seen anything like it before. Thanks Sherry.

      Thanks. I think you mean the Chrysanthemums. They are about 6 inches in diameter.

    A wonderful gallery, Sherry! That first image – cannot stop coming back to it – so beautiful, delicate and dreamy. It must have been a real treat to visit!

      Thanks Lela. I’s extraordinary what varieties there are of chrysanthemums.

        It is – and new ones are coming all the time.
