Winter at the Gardens

Junko and did a quick photo trip to the Chicago Botanic Gardens, as we were both getting a bit bored with processing photos from our trip. Their lights are on the trees but the grounds are fairly bare. It made it a bit more challenging to photograph this time! Also realized there's an ETSOOI theme going on - my favorite.
Check out Junko's shot of one of the dying flowers - http://365project.org/jyokota/challenges-and/2016-11-28 . That was what we actually went to shoot (taking only our macros) but I got distracted!
PS -- still planning to fill November main album with China photos so am now posting daily shots in extras album.
This is beautiful, I like the symmetry of the trees!

Taffy performs magic again. I was standing RIGHT BESIDE HER and there was no snow. Truly. But here, we have winter wonderland. Beautiful.
