Descanso Gardens Part 2

Descanso Gardens is a 150-acre botanical garden located in La Cañada Flintridge, Los Angeles County, California. If you’re not sure where that is in the Los Angeles Metro area, it’s in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains northwest of Pasadena. Descanso has a fascinating history dating back to 1937, more information here.

Summarizing from last weeks post: I was not prepared to take professional photographs of the surreal beauty of the Enchanted Forest of Lights we encountered at the Descanso Botanical Gardens just before Christmas. My son-in-law has the new I phone 11 which handles night photography really well. Last weeks photos were his and this week are the better ones I took that weren’t duplicates of his!! Enjoy!!

Desert Botanical Garden At Night – Phoenix

A couple of weekends ago, we had an opportunity to visit the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden at night. There was an art exhibit my wife wanted to see. I didn’t go with the intent of photography, but I always have my camera. Had I thought about it ahead of time, I probably would have come more prepared. That said, I have attached four shots from that night. Having never visited the garden at night, I didn’t realize just how beautiful it was with the night lighting. Had I intended to do night shooting, I would have brought my tripod and spent time adjusting the aperture and speed to get the type of shot I wanted. It was very crowded with people that evening and when I realized I wanted to take some shots, I grabbed a few on the run if you will…
