Let's Explore The Chicago Botanic Gardens together for their Late Fall Colors!!! I was thinking of all the soft fall colors and the feel and tones of various grasses, seed pods, and older leaves... It's easy to get great shots of brilliantly colored trees but how are we Artistically at the more subdued colors offered now in the area? Browns, tans, golds, and beiges the colors "after fall peak" could be interesting and beautiful to capture... let's give it a try!
Let's all meet in front of the gift shop at 1:00pm to get there as the afternoon lighting begins to soften and get set up for some Beautiful Sunset Lighting later on. (Dependant on Sun obviously [;)]
We're looking forward to seeing everyone, Hope You can make it!!!
