Groupon was offering an excellent deal on annual passes, so I picked one up for me and the husband. Besides being able to enjoy a nice afternoon in a quiet, serene setting, it gave me yet another opportunity to become more comfortable with my recently acquired Pentax KS-1 camera. Wanting a minimalist approach to my camera gear, I paired it with the film-era Pentax F 35-70/3.5-4,5 macro lens. This lens about the size of a typical 50mm prime, making this camera/lens combination easy to carry. While not a true 1:1 macro, the 35-70 allowed me to get close enough to get some good details in the flower shots.
