How to make a Quarry beautiful

Posted by Bruce (Tacoma, United States) on 1 September 2015 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Queen Elizabeth Park is one of my favorite Vancouver BC stops. We have watched on our various trips - the growth of the gardens from a old Quarry to a beautiful site.

I appreciate all the comments – I find them very encouraging. My primary photography is flowers and landscapes along with my grandkids.

Most of my photos are, “as they were taken.” I do work with lighting or darkening them in many cases but use very little “photo-shopping” If I do adjust them – I try to mention it.

My goal is to I try to keep my photography as photography and not turn it into art. While I do love the retouched photos, I personally think they become art and not photography – just my opinion.

This is a gorgeous garden. It is hard to believe that it was once a quarry!
