This was at a swamp. Seems to be an evolutionary adaptation that the stems splays out near the ground to be able to support the tree in loose and soft mud of the swamp.

Congaree national park, USA.



Fallen giant. This root system is probably 10-12 ft across. Just massive. I wish there was a small child/pet that I could have setup next to it to show the scale.



Tree canopy. Typical of a dense forest, there wasn't that much life on the floor as the leaves block out sunlight for the most part.



Board walk through the jungle. During rains/floods much of the forest floor gets inundated and the board walk also gets submerged and would be inaccessible.


Colored reflection.

What a place to hide your excellent bubble bokeh Ine. They picked 3 for the exhibition, but 4 is a stunner! If I may ask, what weapon did you use? Helios 44-2 perhaps?

mo(r)ge!
it's the Flek (35/2.8). all at f2.8 obviously.
love what's going on in the BG of #3, but the unsharpness of the berries is annoying? wish I could have stopped down to f3.2 or 3.5 perhaps, but aperture is stuck. therefore glad it's 2.8, not 2.4 ;-) (would you dare to open it?).

'borrowed' someone's car for #4. leaf kept blowing away, hence the unsharpness. it's thawing ice on a black car.

I have a Flek 35/2.8 as well. Never thought of it as a bubbler. Have to give it a try. Unsharpness no longer bothers me, it is a fact of life with these old lenses. Generally when you resize to 1400 pixels wide or so the image appears much sharper than it is.

TY! did sharpen those. but since it acts as a 'macro' as well due to the 18cm f.distance, I was prob. too close (in the middle of a 'public' shrub) or subject was too big.
that Flek can be so sharp!(!)
waited till the leaf took a rest -from waving all over the place- n ready for a 2nd attempt when my friend Joke (Jo-ke! not 'joke' ) called me in for coffee. so coffee time it was. 1 pic only. black cars can make nice BGs though?

Flek is bubbly

look at the wet trees n ivy in the back?

and the Tak 50/1.4 is bubbly. but the Flek can produce some rather weird bokeh IMHO

n almost Primotar-ish?

(speaking of... had my 'awakening' because of you.
seen all of these awesome quality BG-pics, but didn't start wondering what was going on until you posted some incredible pics from inside a church. amazing bokeh of the holy? Primotar. pricey discovery! ;-)).
