Your Local Botanic Gardens

In your local Botanic gardens you will always find something different to photograph. I recently paid a visit to my local botanical gardens. All the images here have been captured with a Nikon D700 camera with the first two captured with the Nikon 300mm f/4.

Eastern Water Dragon, Mount Coot-tha, Botanic Gardens, Brisbane

I found the above Eastern Water Dragon on a nice grassy patch so I captured him with a very narrow depth of field with a 300mm lens.

Bird of Paradise Flower, Mount Coot-tha, Botanic Gardems, Brisbane

The bird of paradise flower is always a beautiful and colourful subject to capture with your camera, in this case I again used the 300mm lens to give a well defined depth of field.

Japanese Garden, Mount Coot-tha, Queensland

At the gardens there is also a beautiful Japanese garden. The above image of the tree has been captured with the lake in the background. The lens used for this image is the 24-120mm zoom lens.
