With “stay at home orders” in place from various government entities, it is tough to get some spring photos. Parks and cultural centers are now closed also. However, being the prolific photographer, I have over 57,000 photos stored on my computer, many of them not processed. This gives me the opportunity to find new photos without leaving the house!
This is a gate at our Missouri Botanical Garden surrounded by a Chihuly glass sculpture. The Garden is a center for botanical research and science education, as well as an oasis in the city of St. Louis. The Garden offers 79 acres of beautiful horticultural display, including a 14-acre Japanese strolling garden, Henry Shaw’s original 1850 estate home, and one of the world’s largest collections of rare and endangered orchids. This photo was taken about this time in 2014 showing the flowering trees in bloom.
This HDR photo is thee shots taken at different exposures, processed in Lightroom and AuroraHDR software. This process give the photo a wider spectrum of natural light and shows the vibrant colors as they were that day.
