Two out of Three

I had originally planned to visit Longwood Gardens 3 times this year before spring arrived in the Mid-Atlantic area. It looks like I’m going to have to settle for 2 out of 3 this year. Last weekend I joined friends Alan and Greg for a day trip to Longwood. First stop The African Blue Poppies!! These are really nice poppies and Longwood puts them out for 2 weeks this time of year. I know lots of photographers that go just for the Blue Poppies.

In addition to shooting the Poppies and doing some macro work, I tried my new favorite thing, Ultra Wide Panoramas. The Blog Photo is a 14mm frame panorama of the Orchid Room at Longwood.

During my last Longwood posting, I mentioned that I had not found my groove in regard to shooting flowers this year. During the last trip I felt that I got a little closer to being on top of my game.

Hi Don,
