High Hand Nursery hosts a “Bloomtastic” event every year at the private gardens of Maple Rock Gardens in Newcastle, California. The gardens were prepped and primed like a floral Christmas. The weather was perfect, the bees were buzzing, and the macro lens was out. It was a pleasure to see so many families out enjoying the garden with their children in the beautiful weather. In a world of video games, malls, and traffic, it was heartening to know that people still love a great garden. Please enjoy a snapshot of spring from my favorite macro perspective.
In coming weeks I have prepared multiple posts from these beautiful garden each focusing on a different aspect. Thanks for visiting the garden with me! Enjoy your tour.
*For those of you camera nerds out there I was playing with my friend’s Sekonic C-700-U color light meter during this outing and I am totally and utterly in love. I don’t just like it. I love it. I wish I could marry it I love it so much. The accuracy of this tool in conjunction with my Nikon D800 is a match made in photography heaven. I must have one.
