I woke this morning and was a bit gloomy. Other than a couple of shots of water lilies early in the week I had no had a lot to show for my week off. While I am making progress on Shooting B&W Infrared on 120 there were time consuming setbacks this week. However when I woke and saw the sky was as gloomy as my mood, but with some strong sun behind it I know what to do. I grabbed my tripod and my camera and headed to Skylands (the NJ Botanical Garden). Cloudy days are great for shooting flowers as you get a nice glow about them without blowing out the highlights. I wandered through gardens for a couple of hours and then rushed home to my computer to see if what I had captured was as cool as I was thinking it was. Happily they were. Here are a few samples of this mornings work. Which do you like / not like? I'll probably pick something out of these for a watercolor tomorrow.
