On a small meadow at the 'Johannisfriedhof' - a cemetery in my hometown Bielefeld - I came across a yellow coneflower a few days ago. The plant itself was anything but impressive, but against the green background of the meadow and with the shallow depth of field it was a nice photo opportunity. It was early in the morning and the cemetery was still in the shade. But it was already bright enough for a photo and the soft light brought out the colours nicely.

The photo was taken with the Fujifilm GFX 50R camera and the Fujinon GF 4/ 120 mm R LM OIS WR Macro lens. I used a tripod and a remote release cable. Without a tripod it is hard to take a good quality photo of such a macro subject. The blossom never really stood still. There was almost no wind, but it took a few tries until I could take a picture in good technical quality. You always have to have a little patience.

Prints of the pictures are available in my online shop. If you want to visit the shop, you have to leave this website:
