Weekly Photo Challenge: close-up

Friday is the day for the weekly photo challenge organized by The daily post. This weeks topic is “close-up”

Close-up photography literally means taking your photograph from a short distance. but, in particular it is usually understood as macro photography. So, usually flowers, flowerparts, insects or tiny mechanical parts are subject to the photo.

For this image of an apple blossom I used an extension tube in addition to my macro lens. A macro lens is designed for very short distances. The extension tube is for shortening it a bit more and to enlarge the reproduction scale.
