A blanket of buttercups

I was out again yesterday with my Nex-6 and Pentax smc 50mm f/1.7 prime lens and noticed the buttercups making a carpet of yellow under the trees next to the main route to Hertford, I thought is made a nice contrast to see the flowers slowly growing next to the busy main road so I got down low and took these shots with the cars an out of focus blur.  I had to use the back panel lcd on these as I couldn’t got low enough to see through the viewfinder and found the manual focus magnification quite useful to pick out one flower and focus on it.

These were all taken in aperture priority mode at between f/2.8 and f/5.6 and iso set to 200.
