Orchids in Conservatory
On Saturday, our family visited the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont, near Charlotte, and met up with another photographer friend. We spent an excellent morning shooting photos of the gorgeous flora (and occasional fauna).
This was shot in the Orchid Conservatory of the gardens. The tonality of the wall and the flowers, the glistening areas, and the extreme dark of the water moat, all contribute to this powerful image. It was shot with my Sigma 14mm EX ultrawide lens.
