Yesterday some friends and I went to Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. The Gardens were still configured for their winter walk but of course no lights were on in the middle of the day. The weather was clear and sunny but windy and chilly. Truth be told, it was very chilly. I was inspired to continue on by other artists that were painting next to the lake. The clear skies brought out the bright colors and sharp contrasts in the otherwise flat winterscape, perfect for the black and white photographers in our group. I decided to stay mostly (all but two) in color of the six that I kept. Four of them are here. If you're looking for a cool place to walk, this would be the place.
