Macro fail

The latest module on A Year With My Camera has been about macro photography.

And it's here that I've found the limitations of my camera (which, as a reminder, is a Canon G7 X). 

I simply can't either physically get my camera close enough, nor can I zoom in sufficiently close, to get a really closely framed shot. 

I experimented with changing the ISO/f-stop/shutter speed to let more light in - and the reverse - but I really wasn't able to get close enough to capture the detail in the inspiration shots from AYWMC. 

Ultimately, I ended up with a series of images, mostly of uninteresting camelias - too close to get any interesting effect with depth of field, and too far away to get the lovely detail of the flowers.
