Went on a shoot with Peter and Tati or Tanya to everyone else:-)
to the Sydney Botanical Gardens early this morning. I got to the gardens just after 6am expecting to meet them somewhere nearby when I get a text message that they are over across the water at the Opera house . We did eventually catch up and swap lens for some shooting in the gardens before coffee and B&E roll before heading home. Always good to catch up with you two.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon lens EF180mm macro 3.5 L Ultrasonic
Focal length 180mm
Exposure 1/6 sec.
ISO 50

Early morning light.

Converted to B&W in CS4

Thanks for looking – please view large.

Cheers Crispin.
