Wales Botanical Gardens Shoot (Part 1)

The day started promising and the weather was beautiful as we visited Wales Botanical Gardens in Carmarthenshire, South Wales. We walked around the gardens, and within an hour the heavens opened up and it rained… Actually it poured.

Armed with my trusty Fujifilm X-T3 and my 15-45mm and 50-230mm lenses it was a day of taking photos of flowers, architecture and birds. All in inclement weather, so bad that my camera was soaked and there was water running out of my lenses. But cameras are hardy things, and it didn’t matter. Below are images of the Botanical gardens. Due to the weather, we missed a lot of the gardens, but that will be for another day.

There are a lot here today, so they need to be opened to see the full image as some are cropped for presentation of the page.

All images were taken in the Classic Chrome and Monochrome film simulations with highlights set to -1 and shadows set to -2. Just want to go naked with the film simulations today without using a dedicated recipe. Images were cropped and exposure corrected in Photoscape X Pro.

In the next few days I’ll shared Part Two of this blog, which will concentrate solely on the bird photos that I took today.

If you like what you’ve seen, please like and comment. Thank you.

  1. Hey Mark,
    Great shots !
    The photo of the robin, that you were able to take it with 45mm, amazing !
    Yes, also here in Belgium the weather is terrible, especially for this time of year.
    But we are only at the beginning of summer, hopefully there will be many more sunny days where we can all get out and recharge our inner batteries ! We certainly all need it.
    I’m looking forward to reading the rest of your trip – and the pictures of course.
    Take care my friend !
