Spring 2015 in Brooklyn Botanical

Last week we looked at Cherry Blossoms in the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Now let’s take a look through the other areas I walked through. The light got infinitely better as the day went on (so cloudy and cold in the morning). I was also testing out a wide angle lens attachment (more on that next week). Watch the changes in the images.
