I am lucky that our city's Botanic Gardens are only about quarter of an hours walk away from where I live so I visit it often, it's another reason why flowers and flora predominate amongst my photos. This afternoon I walked there with my camera; it was cold and showery and the gardens were all but deserted. I was there between showers luckily and spied this wattle in flower in the upper gardens -a beacon of gold and couldn't resist some photos. This was taken with my old 50mm manual lens at f1.7, after years of neglect I am really enjoying using it again. A subtle layer of texture (thanks Paul Grand) has been added and a TTV frame.
