Caught in the rain
The first shot was taken outside the Visitor Centre at Auckland's Botanic Gardens. As you approach the visitor centre there's three "manufactured" palm to the left of the entrance that you can see in the image above. On the right of the entrance there's some natural palms. Quite a nice contrast, but today I was quite taken with the man made palms. Steely blue came to mind, hence the tones and colours you seen in the image. I left the more curvy twiggy bits top right to support the curvy contrast of the wall. Perhaps let me now what you think of the image.
Something you may have noticed that intrigues me is the way rain drops sit on foliage. During today;s walk I was really spoilt for choice as I got caught in a rain shower. There was rain drops everywhere! Anyway, a couple of my favourite shots from today are images three and four in this post.
