Today is a chill out day before the long trek home begins tomorrow via Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok. Nothing specific is planned. I do hope to catch up on all of the blogging and post some pictures. Even now the computer is importing photos from the camera’s flash card. I’ve probably shot over 10,000 photos this trip, but 7,000 – 8,000 of those are from the time lapse experiments in Bangkok.
The grounds here at the Palm Garden Resort in Hoi An are very beautiful. Before breakfast, I went on a flower shooting spree. The Hibuscus flowers here are vivid, large, and in colors I’ve never seen before.
I tried using my macro lens extension tube for the first time with some of these shots. Shooting flowers in the wild is more difficult than one would think. Pulling focus is the devil itself when zooming way in to the parts of the flower. Then, add a gentle breeze to the formula. Impossible!
