Light, colour, texture

At Otari Wilton's Bush on a sunny late winter's morning, the side lighting emphasised the textures and shapes of the grasses, divaricating shrubs, a cordyline and a treefern with the bush (the use of "bush" to describe NZ mixed forest is probably a bit confusing for non-NZers) in the background.

This is a Botanic Garden in Wellington dedicated to New Zealand native plants, with areas of really interesting plant collections and extensive reserves of bush for people to explore, learn and have fun.  The path here leads to a nature trail and other walks.  I love the colours, the gold and reddish browns and all the different greens, and the foaming textures of the shrubs contrasting with the strap-like leaves of grasses and cordyline.
