Garden Challenge : April: Macros in the Garden

Home for a long weekend in Cyprus, I can finally enter into this month’s challenge. Colour everywhere in my garden, a chance to experiment with my Nikon and a Moment macro lens for iPhone 6. Sadly no tripod, I had to have a steady hand…. 

With the Nikon 7100D, using 18-300mm lens.

With the Moment macro lens for iPhone 6. Difficult to use without a tripod, but I love the ability to get the fine detail and try to make a feature of it…


Participating in Jude’s April challenge over at the earth laughs in flowers .  Head over and check out some of the amazing photographs….

  1. Your garden must be stunning! So much colour and so many lovely flowers. Love how you captured that tiny frog, and I am very impressed by the phone shots, though I struggle to understand how you attach a lens to a phone! (I’m not very phone savvy…)

    • Thanks Jude, There is much colour, I’m not sure about stunning, as I am living away, there is much to be done in it. Gardens in Cyprus at this time of year are full of vivid flowers, it’s a beautiful garden time ! Lens for phone comes with a mounting case.. here is the site:


  2. How startling all that color must be after the very different landscape of the desert! And that frog! Or is it a toad? I probably should be able to tell, shouldn’t I? Beautiful photos, of course, and what pray tell is a “Moment”?

    • You are so right, going home is fluorescent compared to the desert! It’s a lizard Kathryn Grace, it’s head just shot out as I was hovering around with a camera! “Moment” is a company who make professional lenses for the iPhone 6. I participated in crowd-funding this project ( one of many participants) as I was so interested in what they were developing and the plus factor was a huge discount on their lenses & accessories… I don’t regret that impulse at all, I’m really happy with the 3 lenses for the phone, given that iPhone 6 photographs are superb anyway, they are a perfect enhancement… here is the link for anyone who may be interested in what can be done and bought for an iPhone regarding photography…
