This image incorporates backlighting with a bokeh effect produced by a shallow depth of field. The strong colors complemented the perfect spring day enjoyed while visiting this noteworthy garden near Dayton, Ohio.
Spring weather always brings a dash of color. Some of the early species are tulips, daffodils, Iris, and Star Mangolia’s. Somve of these were captured in my backyard as well as local parks like Oakwood Ohio’s Smith Gardens and Cox Arboretum MetroPark.
