I found this romanesco broccoli at the grocery store on Friday while I was doing the shopping. I've noticed them before and thought the swirling patterns were beautiful and I ought to take pictures. I'm sure that's not an original thought or anything, but I figured that even I were skunked while going out and about on one of my regular walks, I would at least be able to have a subject to play around with.
This is the composition I liked best from the shots I took. I used the macro lens and found getting a good focus rather more challenging than I expected even with a small aperture. I guess it was so swirly and with so many peaks and valleys that wonderful lens had trouble. I probably should have pulled out my trusty 35-100 mm zoom but I figure I can do that next time I buy one of these.
We ate it for supper, so I'll keep an eye out at the store next time to try again.
