Maple Rock Gardens – Bloomtastic 2018

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.
