    Bonsai forest ISO100, 16mm, f2.8, 1/60

    This was so cool. All of these Bonsai started life separately and were only brought together last year to create this mini forest.
    I was blown away. The oldest one was grown from seed in 1973. The others weren't much younger than that one.
    That is over 250 years combined of care and training!


    The Duck ISO100, 210mm, f8.0, 1/60

    I was about 3-4 metres away and this was as much of a close-up as I could manage.
    Are there any e-mounts that would allow me zoom closer?


    Winter Bonsai tree ISO100, 16mm, f2.8, 1/60

    This one was about 40cm tall. I forgot to check what species or how old it was.
    It would have to have been about 40 years old.

    Actually 2 differnt locations mate. The bonsai were on exhibit at the national arboretum. And the duck was hanging out in front of an admin building at the museum. :)
