Trees & More Trees
All of these shots were taken at the Botanical Gardens. I just adore the tree in the above photo. It is located right by the library and near the entrance to the gardens. This particular day was very busy with visitors even though it was during the week. I always try to get nature shots without people but sometimes it's just impossible. It was a beautiful day at the gardens this particular day.
I love the way this shot displays a tree within a tree. When I originally took the photo and saw the tree in the background I really did not know how the photo would turn out and was pleasantly surprised because it is so unusual.
To be perfectly honest I took this shot to get the mid day moon against that blue sky. The trees which I always love just happened to enhance the shot with their beauty. I know you can barely see the moon so you could always click the photos to enlarge. I did not even think about using the zoom on my camera until I got home.
