June 17 & 19, 2010. The Red Bank Photography Club planned a "safari" to the gardens on June 19th. Not having been there before, Paddy and I visited on the 17th to check it out. First set of photos taken with a 70-200 mm lens and a tripod, 2nd set with a handheld 14-24 mm.
There were nice walking paths and the ancient trees were awesome.
The following photos were taken with a 70-200 mm lens and a tripod.
Inside the green houses were many plants and many more flowers.
Re-visited the gardens on June 19th with the photography club. The following photos were taken with a hand held 14-24 mm lens.
My conclusion: The 14-24 was somewhat useful, but plants that were not accessible within inches could not be photographed.
