A Morning At The Nelumbo Pond

Ahhh, the serenity. Nothing like a morning walk through the Botanical Gardens. The birds chirping. The wind whistling through the branches. The rapid click of a camera shutter. The desperate cry of a distressed photographer. “Damn Duck Poo….”

Saturday morning saw the first (informal) outing of the year for members of the Blackwood Photographic Club. Matt, Chris, James and Ashley all ventured to a very quiet Adelaide Botanical Gardens, to see whether they could get some worth while photo’s of the Flowering Lotus.  I don’t know whether it was the bike race or simply a Saturday morning, but it was blissfully quiet!

Anyhow, you be the judge to see whether they shot anything worthwhile!  (Click on the pictures to open them)
