I made my annual visit to my favorite daffodil bloom and it did not disappoint. Despite the fact that this years visit had to be a month earlier than last year it was still quite remarkable. The blooms looked like hundreds of little glowing lanterns as the low sun angle back lit them during the magic hour right before sunset.
Capturing this image was not easy as it involved 30 total images compiled for just this one shot. First off this is a focus stacking of 6 total focal points and then each focal point was an autobracket of 5 images to achieve the most dynamic range with the least amount of noise in the shadows. Timing was also extremely crucial to capture the right sun burst at just the right placement. Zero breeze was also very crucial as any movement in the blooms would surely ruin this shot and all of its sharpness. Shot with my Sony A7rii and Sony 16-35mm f2.8 GM @ 16mm | ISO 80 | f/14
