Next to horses, flowers are one of my favorite things to photograph. I'm looking forward to a trip out to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum this weekend. Oh they have so many beautiful flowers and my favorites are by far the dahlia garden. This is a favorite from last year. It was so perfect how could one walk by and not photograph it!
I don't remember the name of this particular dahlia and this year when I go out I will try and remember to photograph the little plate by the different flowers so I know their names. This one was so colorful but I wanted to try it in B&W and I think it worked well as the focus is now more on the perfection of the petals as opposed to the color.
Not all trips to the arboretum are successful, I've come home with many duds. So hopefully we have a good day tomorrow.
Happy Trails ~ Gina
