Garden d’Lights

Garden d’Lights is an annual light show held at Bellevue Botanical Garden each year from Thanks Giving to New Year. It features over ½ million tiny lights which transform the garden into a blossoming winter wonderland, capturing the “d’Light” in everyone.

This is a beautiful place to witness the Christmas lights in Bellevue. These pictures are from our visit last December on a cold winter evening.

Sunday Stills: Shallow Depth of Field

What is a Shallow Depth of Field (DOF)? Well it is basically having your subject in focus in the foreground and blurring out the background.

This flower was photographed at Bellevue Botanical Garden this Autumn and is my entry for Sunday Stills Photography this week.
