On April the 1st earlier this year, I took photos of Oslo’s Botanisk Hage. That was during very early spring, end winter.
Now in the summer, the same place has been totally transformed into a kaledescope of vibrant colours and hues to meet the human eye.
Following this, is a photo journey of the photos I took with just a mobile phone camera. Oh well, there were some colour issues with my REAL camera, so I guess in this case the mobile camera (cheap as it may sound) triumphed over a real one. At least the colours were accurately captured, though the resolution was crappy on some of them. At one point the phone got really over heated, because I think I overdid the macro mode too much (touch focus) hence I had to switch off and reboot the phone a few times, losing some candid shots 🙁
Nonetheless, I did have a wonderful time capturing all these and felt really blessed that Nature has given to us these treasures to savour with pleasure. Enjoy the photos as I have enjoyed taking them. One day when I do get a real good DLSR, perhaps the quality of these pictures might improve. But here they are, in their essence, despite the quality.
A note that commentaries follow after mini galleries. There might be a need to scroll down a bit to read about the gallery.
Bright and sunny, as I approach the greenhouse.
Purple and yellow delight. Even though this was just a shrub in a corner, the simple but excellent combination of colours make this mini gallery just awesome.
