Gorgeous shot Beverly! Captured at a great angle and the light is perfect. I am hoping you do a Botanical garden series smile
Beverly Andrighetti: I was able to get shots of some fantastic topiary creations, Frances, and will probably post them at a later date.
These are the very best sculptures made out of driftwood that i have ever seen Bev... they are beautiful and your image has done them justice with this image....petersmile

Bravo to Heather Jansh!
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, she is a very talented artist, Peter. I thought that the Botanical Garden's presentation of these two lovely driftwood sculptures in this setting was perfect.
These are so gorgeous, Beverly - and you've really captured them well. Love the treatment!
Beverly Andrighetti: These driftwood sculptures were wonderful to see and a pleasure to photograph. Thank you very much, Elizabeth.

Very nice result with the processing in the back.
Beverly Andrighetti: It was a very special exhibit amongst some wonderful topiary art, Mary. I was amazed that simple driftwood could be used to produce sculptures so lifelike.
What rally original and attractive sculptures.
Beverly Andrighetti: They are indeed, Brian. She is a very talented artist.
I thought this rang a bell. I remember seeing her on a TV program called springwatch.
