Cattle trails along the side of Ranch Road 152, near Mason, TX. Shot this on my April 2010 Texas wildflower trip, with my Dad and brother along for the ride. There was a decent breeze this morning, and there was no way all those buttercups were going to hold still for a nice long exposure at f/45 to get everything sharp. So I decided to get just the tops of the flowers in focus with a little front lens tilt on the 4x5, and shot it at f/11 instead! I actually rather like the effect, with the flowers in focus all the way from front to back but a little blur in the tops of the mesquite trees.
