A couple of weeks ago a friend took me to the Cranbourne Botanical Gardens that feature many Australian Native flowers. It is a great place to see many.
It is definitely the right time of the year to go and visit the Cranbourne Botanical Gardens. Many of the native Australian flowers are in bloom late winter early spring. I’ve spoken about this a few times before how I suspect it could be because the summers are hot and dry and the plants need to conserve themselves. Perhaps flowering is hard work for the plants.
We do have some weird and wonderful flowers. Though the same can be said for the birds and animals as well. Australia is quite a unique country and I think I need to appreciate it more.
Many of the flowers that I have found at those gardens I’ve never seen before. Some I have. I did enjoy the day, but I made a big mistake when taking the photos and all the images were done in jpeg. I don’t think it mattered too much in the end, but I need to make sure I don’t do it again.
Just before I went there I made a big decision. I haven’t said anything, but perhaps it is time. When it came to it, I decided I couldn’t sell my D850. I believe there is nothing wrong with using it just for macro. In the past I’ve talked about how much gear I have for macro photography and I don’t want to buy it again. So for the foreseeable future, it is the camera I will use for that.
However, any new macro lenses or whatever I get, they will be for the Fujifilm X-T3.
I’m sure you have seen the size of the gallery. It is a big one this week. Though, I didn’t do all the images or the different ones. There are still many left for another time. I hope you enjoy them.
