This is my favorite photograph from latest visit in Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. When I arrived, the succulent section on the side of the Visitors Center was still in the shadow. I am glad it caught my eye, less than half hour later I would not be able to take this image any more.
I knew right away it will look great in black and white, with the spot light on the middle of the plant and darker corners. I was so excited, I do not know why it took me so long to finally sit down and put this vision into reality. Just as I envisioned this one.
