These were taken at the Cherokee Park Golf Course. Sandie and I went out one evening, late, to shoot there. It was dusk and the light was not sufficient for my macro lens -- wide open at f/2.8. Sandie, however, got some great shots with her 50 mm at f/1.4.
Fascinated with all the thistles and frustrated at not getting the shots, I got up early the next morning and went back by myself -- f/2.8 was perfect then. :)
