Morning in the Aquatic Garden

September 02, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is one of those places I find myself visiting frequently. Usually, when I visit the gardens, I find the flowers and dragonflies the most compelling. They make for obvious subjects, so I focus on close-up photography. I never found a  way to capture the beauty of the gardens as a whole, without focusing on the parts. However, my last visit to the gardens was just after peak season for the flowers. The absence of flowers gave me an opportunity to look at the gardens in a new way. I found that I really liked the way the morning light fell on all the greenery of gardens. The following series is my attempt to capture the beauty of that morning light.
