This is yet another of my favorite pics from vising the gardens.
During this second trip I only brought my Sigma 120-400mm telephoto lens because many of the flowers are 3-10 feet from the paths you have to walk on. This made bringing my 100mm Macro Canon lens useless because of the distance, and I decided to not bring my Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens too . . . which was a mistake.
I didn’t think carefully about how I’d get the best landscape shots of the cherry blossoms lining the one side of the lake in the gardens.
Anyways, I still got some really nice shots from the far side of the lake looking at the cherry blossom trees, so I guess it all worked out in the end.
