Garvan Gardens 4/25/2013

Bud…. Weis…. Hey, where is Er?!?!

On my way down to catch some photos of flowers and scenery, I saw these two frogs hanging out around a pond.  These frogs are HUGE!  I almost thought they were fake!

This next photo was taken with two shots.  First, I snapped a quick shot of the scenery to keep the leaves and flowers from blurring.  Next, I used a 10 stop ND filter to get a nice long flow of the waterfall and pond.  I then blended them together in Photoshop.


I like close-ups of waterfalls, especially when there is nice texture like you see in the moss here.


Another waterfall shot. I wish the azalea had been blooming more.


I often forget to take detail shots when I’m shooting landscape scenes.  I paused a moment to get a closeup of this delicate branch.


This is the biggest waterfall in Garvan Gardens.  Again, I took two shots.  One of the trees and shrubs with a quick shutter speed and another with my 10 stop ND filter.


This next shot was quite accidental.  I was about to leave the park and as I walked by the azalea, I saw the waterfall in the background.  I liked the composition so I took the time for another 2-shot blended photo.  This one might be my favorite of the bunch.


Another detail shot on the way out of the park.  Lots of color at the gardens right now!
