Sunset in the garden

An extremely rare view of South Coast Botanic Garden at sunset (the white buildings are miniatures and part of the children's garden). The garden usually closes at 5 p.m. but was open late on Friday night for the members' preview of the yearly plant sale and grand reopening of the recently redesigned gift shop. I was there as a featured local artist because the gift shop now sells my photo greeting cards. As sunset colors filled the sky, I simply had to capture the moment!

 

Today (Saturday), I spent more time at the gift shop opening and had this photo on my iPad to show staff (they loved it). I also met a few of the other featured local artists, which was a nice bonus. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/50 sec., ISO 1600 - not cropped, composed in camera)

 

Some of my work is available on Redbubble (link on my Flickr Profile page).
