Desert Botanical Garden – April 18, 2013

Walkway Bridge 2 Walkway Bridge 1

The Desert Botanical Garden is in the Phoenix – Tempe, Arizona area. Josiah and I spent an afternoon walking some of the 140 acre park, and of course taking pictures. This walkway, bridge had some interesting lines, and shadows. We had to wait for 10-15 minutes for the area to be empty of humans. Both processed in Lightroom. The bricks / pavers area were treated to a black and white filter on both images. On the top image, I played with the colors and saturation. I like the “other world” effect. Shot late April 2012.  Shot with the Canon 5D Mark II, ISO-50, F8, 1/80 sec, 17mm. This was the first outing I distinctly remember carying the 5D with the 17-40 lens, and the 30D with the 70-200 lens. I’m glad it did not surpass 95 degrees.
