Blossom 2008-03-16 - Dwarf Cherry blossoms
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/100s, f8
-------------------------------------------
Not many trees blossom here yet, and those that do only holds a small number of blossoms. Like this Dwarf Cherry, Prunus cerasus. Not too many blossoms on it but enough to make it a little hard to pick which ones to photograph..

Blossom 2008-03-16 - Midland Hawthorn
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/125 - 250s, f8
-------------------------------------------
I think it's most common to use macro for things like moss and lichen, but it is possible also to use the zoom. You don't get the real close ups of course, but on the other hand the depth of focus is considerably better. And it's fun too.

Blossom 2008-03-04 - Cornelian cherry dogwood
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/125s, f8
-------------------------------------------
I have taken photos of this tree's blossom once before. Then using the Raynox 250. I was pleased with those images, but I couldn't resist taking photos with the Raynox 150 too. It's actually quite hard to say which are the best. Beautiful blossom nonetheless

Trees 2008-02-29 - Trees and a winding plant
Lens: None (zoom)
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/80s, f3,5 - 4,5
-------------------------------------------
These trees grow down in The Pit and they don't seem to mind beeing flooded from time to time. Unfortunately I don't know what kind of tree it is only that they have heart shaped leaves that gets beautifully subdued colours in Autumn.

Buds 2008-02-29 - Buds on a tree
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: Av mode, ISO 80, 1/60s, f8
-------------------------------------------
These were part of my "test round&qot; with the new macro lens. The buds here was found on the trees in the gallery above. It is nice to see so many buds and small leaves around. Pretty soon everything will be green The first two of these have been slightly cropped.

Blossom 2008-02-25 - Cornelian cherry dogwood
Lens: Raynox DCR-250
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/160 - 250s, f8
-------------------------------------------
Many trees bloom before they develop any leaves. Like the Cornelian cherry dogwood, Cornus mas. The flowers are small and yellow. Later on there will be red cherry-like berries. I don't recall having seen any of those. Here are some macro photos of the flowers.

Larch 2008-02-04 - European Larch
Lens: None (zoom)
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/250s, f5,6
-------------------------------------------
This Larch, and two others, are growing close to the peoples park Sundspärlan. They look rather old and only have branches at the top of thehir trunks. No needles at this time of year. I think the Larch is perhaps the most beautiful of our coniferous trees.

Lens: None (zoom)
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/320s, f8 (first); 1/500s, f5,6

We have had a couple of storms the passed month, but this tree still got several of its fruits. All of them in the top of the tree. There was another Platan (Platanus x hybrida) a little bit further away, also with fruits in the top.
