The longer I practice photography, the more I understand the value of taking lots and lots of pictures. This Saturday, I visited the Denver Botanic Gardens to see the Chihuly exhibit. I spent about three hours touring the gardens and taking pictures. All together, I wound up with 406 pictures. Unfortunately, I only thought to bring my macro lens, because macro is my favorite, but a longer lens would have really come in handy for shooting the glass sculptures.
I was fortunate to have some cloud cover for part of the visit which provided nice light quality for a number of the photos. We ended up leaving right before a rain shower, so the timing was, on the whole, just about rightl
It was a busy day for bees at the garden and there seemed to be thousands of them on the flowers. I was pleased to get some good macros of them.
This was my third visit to the Botanic Gardens, my husband and I have made it a yearly event, and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite traditions. Now I just need to get a second camera battery, because the one I have doesn’t have enough juice to go much beyond 400 shots, and I could easily have taken a hundred more during the trip.
