Up Close and Purple

My winter project was supposed to be experimenting with macro photography shooting close ups of flowers and other plants.  I never really got around to doing that unfortunately.  But I have been working with relatively inexpensive extension tubes on the various flowers we have in our yard recently.

This happens to be a purple clematis growing on a vine.  These extension tubes create very shallow depth of field as you can see below but not much control at all on the camera.  I literally move the camera and tripod back and forth to change the focal point then make ever-so minor focus adjustments from there.

This is my first real macro shot I've published online that I can remember.  Be gentle.  :-)
