GGW's Picture This Contest: Let's Talk About Light



When I read about Gardening Gone Wild's theme for their April photo contest - light - I thought of this picture right away. I took it around New Year's at the Santa Barbara Zoo, and the cheerful backlighting reminds me of everything I miss about California winters - mild temperatures and sun. Ah well, if we can't live in California at least we can visit once in a while. So here's my entry for the April GGW photo contest.

  4. WOW! Great photo, it's almost as refreshing as a 75 degree day of sunshine (almost). Good luck!

  5. Ha ha, Catmint, I don't think I'm to the point where I take good pictures by choice. I'm pretty sure luck still plays a big part if anything comes out nicely. But one thing I like about photography (and gardening) is that there's plenty to learn for decades to come, so it will never get boring.
