Big Bertha's Adventures

Elegance in the Garden


I took a Monday off from work last month to visit the Dallas Arboretum.  Zero color/lighting adjustments were made to the photos in Photoshop or any other program.  What you see is what I photographed just as I saw it.

Before publishing this post I was trying to think of the perfect title for the blog.  I thought “Drama in the Garden” but it doesn’t convey the right meaning.  I text my friend Tore who is a wordsmith – explaining the type of word I needed.  I need a word that explains beauty – the Katherine Hepburn type of beauty – that is refined and elegant.  As Tore said, “a daisy is adorable.  These flowers are elegant.”  It became clear, the title for this blog should be:  “Elegance in the Garden”.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Lens: My beloved 100 mm macro lens (Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L macro IS)
Date:  March 2015
Notes:  Cloudy days are the best for outdoor photography.

  1. Would you share prints of these elegant photos? Or the files so I can print them? They are gorgeous and I have the perfect spot- right next to a beautiful purple flower you shared!
