Cottage and Greenhouse

The charming little Pink Cottage, Greenhouses, and Camellia House at Planting Fields arboretum, Long Island, New York.

Planting Fields

It was a lovely day after a hard rain in the morning which helped cool things off. Marc, Paula and I had a leisurely walk through the grounds of Planting Fields Arboretum admiring the flowers and trees.

Cloudy Long Island Beaches

It rained on and off during the morning while we there at Gilgo, Captree, Jones and Robert Moses. I didn’t see many shorebirds. It was fun watching the terns fish and squabble. It’s been ages since I went to the shore and we enjoyed the trip and picnic.

The clouds add atmosphere. I love processing the RAW images in Lightroom to reveal what I saw that the camera could not capture. It’s like magic. The last two are by Marc.

The last of 3 posts. This one covers mixed flowers and plants found in the greenhouse. The last 5 were photographed on the grounds.

Planting Fields 2 Camellias

We spent hours photographing the Camellias. This is a small sample.

I used my Nikon D750 with an AF-S Micro Nikkor 105mm 1:2.8G ED lens and a Sony DSC-RX10M4 camera.
