Fall in the New York Botanical Gardens: A Hive Fall Creative Challenge Entry

My entry to the fall creative challenge has been a long time in coming because I was playing a waiting game, for the colors of fall to really and truly arrive here in New York City. At the time when I first planned this entry, about a month ago, no one had submitted any photography entries that I had seen. Now that some people have, I can't help but feel that maybe I should have gone ahead and done a doll, but what the hey, there are only five days left, and I haven't really got time to do anything new. :)

On Saturday, I went to the New York Botanical Gardens (one of my favorite places in the world) with the goal of trying to capture some of the wonder of the fall with my lens. I was particularly interested in fall colors, where ever I could find them. The resulting set on Flickr has 125 photos, which you can see here: New York Botanical Gardens, 10/23/2010. For the purpose of this submission, here are the shots I think turned out best...I know there are a lot, but I'm pretty happy with the set as a whole - it's nice to be reminded that when I set out to take good pictures, I can succeed. :)

If you would be interested in prints of any of these images, please contact me at Etsy account or by e-mail at unforth@yahoo.com. :)

All in all? A very nice day - the best of fall, really. ;)


  1. Beautiful work. Good luck!

  2. Thanks! :) I don't expect to win - I'm not even sure what winning accomplishes - but it meant I got out there to enjoy some fall, so it was all worth it. ;)
