This close-up image, when the soft wind was blowing, attracted my attention. Due to intense sunlight, I could not record the movements of the branches of plants. But the glow of sunlight on the plant stem has created a beautiful image. The blurred background image, helped to beauty photo.
For this photo, I used my Hasselblad 500 C/M camera and Carl Zeiss Planar 80/f2.8 CF lens. The lens was set at a near distance, and the image recorded with aperture 8 and shutter speed 1/500 seconds on Fuji Velvia 50 120 roll film.
