Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden

A good place to take close up views of the fingers and toes, fists, feet, and even facial hair, of the plants surrounding us.

Images created with Canon 1D mark iii, L lens zoom 28-135 , and Kenko 36mm Extension tube. Late afternoon, minimal light, ISO 3200.

Low Light Garden Abstracts


The very low light after sunset, with flowers brightly washed by the rain,  allowed me to move the camera beyond the confines of easily identifiable objects.  It created the shades and colours of these abstracts. I love how the strange hues of dusk highlight colour combinations not seen in daylight.
