botanical gardens

so i spent a lovely sunny yesterday at the missouri botanical garden.  it's been sooo long since i've had a day just to myself to shoot.  it was soooo good!!    just me, my ipod and my camera.  the gardens were beautiful and i had lots of think/release/praying time.  

these are just a few of my favorites from the day...

Absolutely phenomenal. How did you learn how to do that? Serious skills!

Glad you had some time to soak in the fragrance of our Lord!

So jealous! That sounds like such a relaxing day!

Great pics!

Great pics!! I liked the same ones you did, and add the dragon fly one to my list as well. Beautiful!!

Wish I could take pictures like that...

But I suppose that's really not going to happen on my Nikkon Cool Pix, is it? :)

Oh, and yes, I'd need some talent too :)

Nice shots! I liked the turtle the most, closely followed by your second fav. And brian, any camera will do. You've just got to develop an eye for what makes a good picture. Good equipment helps, but is definitely not the primary ingredient.
