Sometimes it is harder to get a photo of one simple thing - than to get good shots filled with things. These are my attempts at simplicity.
Nothing more simple than the full moon over the mountains. For this photo I definitely had to use the tripod to keep the camera still. I used auto focus, just to see what would happen, and I'm delighted with the results
Used zoom to 140X - it was a windy day so I tried swaying in the same way as the breeze - and it worked.
A single rose in a friends garden. It was so long ago - and taken with a film camera, that I forget the settings, but I know there was a lot of fiddling to get it just right.
