Palmenhaus by roarbinson
Palmenhaus
A rare foggy night in Vienna. Depicted is the Palmenhaus (palm tree house) in Burggarten which contains la Brasserie and Schmetterlinghaus (butterfly house).
Loading...
Just before my Scotland trip I got a Nikon D800. Since I didn't then get a wide angle lens with it I didn't take it on the trip. But I have a macro lens (Sigma 105mm f2.8) which I started using more. It works much better on the D800 than it did on my D5100 - that being because the D5100 does not have an internal autofocus motor and can solely use the lens's. This makes focusing this lens on the D5100 way slower and more inaccurate. It even went so far that I'd switch to manual focusing and even the smallest movement of myself, the camera, or the subject would put everything out of focus.

The D800's internal autofocus motor works like a charm and focusing this lens (automatically) is almost always very easy and fast. I'm excited to get more out of it, maybe even doing focus stacking or using my Nikon flash for greater depth of field with my macro lens.

These are the pictures I have gotten so far. They are from visiting Vienna's Wüstenhaus (desert house) and Palmenhaus (palm tree house) in Schönbrunn as well as Vienna's botanical garden. Should you ever come to Vienna, all of these locations are worth visiting - the first two especially on bad weather days since they are indoors.

Inner Peace by roarbinson
Some kind of water lily at the botanical garden.

Other World by roarbinson
The Pricks of a cactus at the botanical garden. This one was harder to get the camera to focus where I wanted it to because of all the pricks and them being in so many plains of focus.

Prick by roarbinson
Another cactus - this one was in Schönbrunn's Wüstenhaus.

The flower on the cactus with pink pricks (botanical garden).

Strange by roarbinson
A kind of palm tree called Chamaedorea elegans ... besides of it looking like a small slender palm tree it has orange branches with a kind of blue berry on them.

Ambition by roarbinson
A caterpillar stretching out from a cactus. I was pretty disappointed that its head was out of focus (or that my depth of field was not bog enough). By the time I had corrected my aperture the caterpillar had decided not to stretch out anymore.

Ferns by roarbinson
Ferns from below. The black dots are seeds (if that is the correct term for ferns).

More to come. Hope you like.
