12.31.11, a photo by colemama on Flickr.

Reflections, nature, color, lines - a bit busy, too....all represent the year of 2011 behind the lens. Both the first day and the last day (as well as many days in between) of 2011 included time at the Naples Botanical Garden - best investment/contribution of the year!

There, the straight lines provide structure to the harmonious curves and the pops of color are rich in their own reflections. Both flora and fauna capture one's attention and the lens hardly does them justice. Each time I go, my shots seek out favorite spots and views, but the relaxed environment allows for some surprises, as well. Other reflective photos revealing natural color and lines were taken, but the underlying 'busy-ness' here better tells the story of the year. Wishing everyone the best for 2012! :) Naples Botanical Garden, Naples, FL


  1. Beautiful colours. This is certainly a great spot to stop and enjoy.

  2. I really like this... Love those reflections!
