My grandiose vision was to arrive at sunrise and take a bunch of world-class, award-winning tulip photographs. Then, of course, at the class I would overshadow the instructor and “wow!” all attendees with my knowledge and genius.
I’d have done all that if the weather would have cooperated. It didn’t.
It was 100% overcast and windy at sunrise. On queue, a massive cloudburst of biblical proportions deluged the tulips at the exact moment the class ended.
Instead, I went with plan “B”.
As Canon often does, it allows attendees at classes it sponsors to try out their equipment. I took that opportunity to give the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS USM macro lens a challenging blustery workout.
All these pictures were taken with that lens under less than ideal conditions.
