Behind the botanical gardens are hills covered with grasses and scattered oak trees. And filled with birds, lizards, a few trails, and possibly a few rattlesnakes on a warm, sunny day. On such days, I stick to the trails and walk slowly and look carefully before I move. Thus, a view up a hill to a lovely copse of oak and scrub.
Bronica SQ-AI, 80mm f2.8 Zenzanon PS, Ilford XP2 Super 400. And no snakes.
A climb to the top of the local botanical garden, under the trees, through the orchard, and to the cactus garden. The tall white blob – not too sharp in this image – is a yucca in full bloom.
It’s hard to stay home when the world outside is still blooming away after the winter rains!
Another image using Fuji Velvia 100 taken in March. Clouds are not “normal” in the dry areas where I live, so are very much appreciated by yours truly!
This is a panorama / stitched image, handheld camera, using a Nikon 100mm f2.8 E series lens, f5.6, 1/125, 320 iso.
