Taken on the same morning as this at the Sydney Botanical Gardens. It’s unfortunate that they do not open the gates until 7am so you miss that magic hour.

    I really – REALLY like this one Crispin – especially in b&w. Makes it different and more classy looking than most images around!
    You are giving me ideas – I might one day head out to the botanical gardens too (I’ve not been good at going out for quite a lot of years – so any trip out for photos will be a big thing…)

  • Thanks Kallena, yes I did a colour one as well but much preferred this. Look forward to see the results of your trip out soon :-).
