Here’s a story. So I noticed these plants a couple days earlier but the sunset was not that great. Few days later there is a promising sunset and I’m racing to this spot. As I pass a family of four sitting on a bench I hear an “Excuse me, can you take our picture?” I’m thinking to myself, seriously? I have all my gear jamming to a spot and out of all the people walking about they decide to ask the one guy that is most frantically trying to be somewhere. I surprised myself when I replied, “Sorry I cant! Gotta go over there!” For some reason I crack up with how one of them replied. “Wow, really?” There was so much defeat in those two words. To the family of four whom I hastily shut down. I hope you got your family photo and I hope you understand why I had rejected you so hard. Hope this picture serves as a consolation. I guess this is becoming an annual tradition. When you got no other flowers but iceplant ones, might as well make the most of it. I was very impressed the Samyang was able to focus so closely here. About 3-4 inches away (from the glass). I had to do some tripod acrobatics to get so low. If you’ve seen iceplant you know they dont grow very high so I was basically shooting ground level. I’m sure I looked a bit ridiculous but it was worth it in the end.
