When I go for a hike in Summer, I often can’t resist the temptation to pack a macro lens. You never know what you run into and it provides a great alternative for when the light is not ideal for shooting landscapes!
I shot the above flower close-up mid August, when I was hiking along an Alpine meadow near Schönried in the Swiss canton of Bern. To be honest, I don’t have a clue what type of flower it is and in what flowering state it was. It did stand out amongst the neighbouring colored flowers though and I really liked it, so I was happy I brought the macro lens for the hike.
Please do drop me a comment if you know what type of flower it is!
