Daylilies in pre-rain light

I recently acquired a new lens—a Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 prime. This is one of the shots taken on its inaugural tour around the house yesterday afternoon just before it started raining. I’m really enjoying the narrow depth of field afforded by the f/1.8 aperture. The bokeh is sweet too!

Aside from my trusty Sigma 105mm macro lens, this is the first prime lens I’ve ever owned. I have several zooms of various reaches, but I look forward to exploring the creative—and constraining—possibilities that the 50mm offers.
