From the snow covered trails on the rolling hills of Maryland, to the tropical paradise of the Conservatory of Longwood Gardens. Beauty in nature from both extremes.
After a restless night, I stumbled into the car at 4:30 in the morning to reach Kennett Square to attend a photography workshop with Joshua Taylor at Longwood Gardens. As a Canon camera instructor, this workshop was to highlight the Orchid Extravaganza at Longwood Gardens.
I haven’t gotten very far into processing the images from today, but here are a few highlights. Known as the “Orchid Meadow” this large room offers tranquil waterfalls, soothing greenery and exotic orchids.
There is one beautiful area from my visit last year that I remember fondly. Alas, this year it was being set up for some type of major presentation, and the workers were busy. But at least a photo memory from last year is worth a fresh viewing.
There is a small orchid room that is filled from floor to ceiling with a wide variety of orchids. It was hard to concentrate on a single subject and to isolate it from its close neighbors. I did manage to capture a number of beautiful flowers though to brighten your day.
Once I’m completed with processing today’s images I’ll certainly share all of them with you. Hope you have a great weekend planned and may these bring you a burst of cheer. Bella
