    Cambridge Botanical Gardens, ENGLAND

    Val, (my wife), travelled to see the Botanical Gardens in Cambridge, England, as part of a "treat" for her birthday. It turned out to be a lovely day, very warm. The gardens were in full bloom, and I could post more images, but must not over do it. Hope you enjoy the attached image, which was taken in the tropical house, extremelly hot, so it was, take you pictures and retreat before one melted. It probably would not have done the camera any goodCambridge Botanical Gardens, ENGLANDg[/IMG]

    The moisture inside the Tropical House serves as a great background to your very colorful image. I wonder if the original image allows you to provide more space around this blossom, as it feels a bit cramped to me.

    As others have mentioned, please do post some more images captured there if they are of this quality. Even if they're not, post them if you have questions about them.

    I think a wonderful photo. Cambridge is about a hundred miles from me, but would you believe takes 5 hours or more to get to on public transport.

    I was hoping to visit again with the local Coach company; but they went bust. It just does my head in that I can't reach photogenic areas like Cambridge.

    This is very pretty. I really like the subdued background.
