I'm playing over at Kim's Cafe today.
I drove down to a little local Japanese Garden on Sunday to gets some fresh air and just roam around among the well manicured grass and quiet corners it has to offer. I go about twice a year and this visit was by far the best. I had no idea the Cherry Blossoms would be out this early.
They always add such candy like color to the landscape.
I spent 6 years in Japan and the Cherry Blossom Festival in Hirosaki was always a favorite day trip.
I used Kim's Canvas Black Magic here @100%-I also layered a vintage wash, a sweet vintage layer & added a light vignette from Florabella.
P.S. I LOVE this texture :-)
I do not consider myself a landscape photographer but I wanted to play like I was.
The gardens do not allow tripods-only monopods and since I don't own a monopod I decided to see how slow I could catch the water hand held...
1/13, f22, ISO 100 18-270 lens @91mm
(I'm rather happy at the results)
...You're Canadian geese are having a grand time down here!
This one's contemplating...stay or fly home!
Happy (what ever you shoot) snapping!
