Flowers are nice to look at.

So after a nice long drive from Nichael’s, we decided to head back to the Botanical Gardens for three reasons.

  • Photographing flowers in great sunlight is great practice for someone fairly new to DSLR photography.
  • It was a beautiful, warm summer day.
  • It was FREE!

It’s a shame that I didn’t spend more time in the Gardens while I actually lived in Montreal. The grounds are wonderfully kept, it is free from 5pm to midnight and it is free to Ville Montreal residents.  Of course, I think the drinking, partying and liming around in Montreal had something to do with me not really seeing the gardens much. There is always the Chinese Lantern festival going on in the fall, which is lovely. Anyway, while reminscing about my time in Montreal, the gardens, settings and landscaping do provide lovely pictures and can make rank amateurs look positively amazing.
