Cardinal Flower in its Glory by 

Berkshire Botanical Garden, Stockbridge, MA USA

The Berkshire Botanical Garden is one of my favorite places, and this year we visited in late August when the Cardinal Flowers are really in their glory. These beauties were down by the pond and the lighting was just magical around 6:00.

Nikon D700 with Nikon 105mm micro lens.

I am a photographer living in Massachusetts and my passion is flowers. I take the time to reveal the special beauty of each flower and I hope that comes through as you look at my work.
