I walked out of my kids school this morning, after volunteering for several hours, and decided to treat myself to a stroll through the arboretum. It’s one of my happy places & it’s PEACEFUL!
Unfortunately it was early afternoon, and the cloud cover moved away so I was shooting in pretty full sun (think harsh shadows). However, I got a few shots I’m really happy with.
I stepped out of my editing comfort zone today. I shot in RAW, uploaded in the free Lightroom Beta, edited using sliders and a few presets, and exported as JPEG files. Wow, Lightroom really is so much faster!
Enjoy a virtual stroll through the JC Raulson Arboretum…. Spring is definitely still in bloom!
I love the budding roses framing the blooming rose.
I think they called this flower a shooting star (note to self- write down names!). Never seen anything like it.
