27 Feb 15. Weather looking promising last Sunday afternoon, it tricked us, we set out to visit a new nursery (to us) that had an interesting ad in the local paper. It was a pleasant drive but not sure I could say all that much for the nursery. It did incorporate a landscaping section and a nice display of waterfalls for the yard. After inquiring about price, and then picking myself up off the ground, we wandered around for maybe 20 minutes looking at primarily empty areas where we would have liked to have see plants. I did find a few interesting evergreens in one area and I took a few shots of them, but that was about all that was available to shoot. If we are ever in that area in the summer we'll have to give the place another opportunity to impress us, although based on the prices we saw on the meager display, I doubt that that this will be a place we let separate us from our wallets. However, the few trees that I photographed did offer some nice images. One I've selected for today is of an evergreen that was yellow when I shot the photo. It reminded me of the fall color for the Tamarack, but I don't believe that is what it was. But one thing for sure, it isn't another shot of birches.
I took the base image, cloned out a lot of distracting stuff, adjusted it for max tonality, then ran it against a color zone system filter, and added a wee bit of clarity. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 200; 1/400 sec @ f / 5.3.
