Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens

Mar 5, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

Another shot from my trip to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens. This was taken at the garden during high noon when the sun is hot enough to cook an egg. Luckily this tropical garden was filled with large trees covering the park with plenty of shade. I rarely shoot during the afternoon because of the Florida heat. So enjoy the blue skys in these photos from Fairchild’s because you won’t catch me out in this sun again anytime soon.
