Bullrush with Bokeh



I found this bullrush growing in a little pond in the corner of a playground in Knebworth Hertfordshire in April 2011. I used my Tamron 70-300mm Macro zoom to set to f/5.6 and 300mm to throw the background out of focus.

  • Pentax K200D
  • Tamron 70-300mm Macro zoom
  • f/5.6
  • 1/320
  • iso400
  • 300mm


I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.

    Nice, soft and sunny bokeh, Simon. Makes me want go out; but unfortunately it’s dark and Grey over here. Cheers, harrie.
