365.126 Otherworldly

I went to Wikipedia and looked up the various planets referenced in the _Dune_ series, didn’t find any that made reference to multiple suns, realized that, having never read any of the novels, and not seen the film since 1995 or 1996, that I’m not anywhere near Geek enough to reference an obscure Dune planet in the title of today’s 365 image. I thought of calling it Tatooine, but that would just be too hackneyed.

Anyway.

We have a new entry in the macro family today, and other than the inability to change the aperture at will, it’s a brilliant performer, much like in ordinary usage. And I’m thankful that the newer versions of the Fotodiox extension tubes have a little prong in them to hold open the aperture on those new lenses with no aperture ring, otherwise the nifty fifty would’ve sat on the shelf for yet another day…

D7000. Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G. ISO800, 1/40th, f/1.8. Very slight adjustments in Aperture, not even enough to mention, really.
