Fall is slowly catching up in the neighborhood. This is my first time in the east coast and I am very eager to see how it looks. There so many gardens in my area is completely filled with beauty and this post is about one such garden. Brookside Garden in Montgomery County, Maryland. This park has some amazing collection of Roses (specially the ones we find in India) and lots of Asian and American spices, herbs and plants. Trust me this post is not about roses. :). This post is all about equally beautiful fall colors.
I simply loved the simple and filled with beauty everywhere. A very small park with a little pond and loads of trees surrounding all perfect for fall color changing.
Also, it was one of the most beautiful park for families too. Saw lots photographers capturing every precious moments of these families and to be families. 😉

There is a beautiful aquatic garden in the mid of Washington D.C. I loved the concept of a beautiful little the jungle like marsh in the U.S. capital.
The never sticking water on the lotus leaf was one type of the photography which I never thought off. All of a sudden my husband dropped the water from our water bottle and filled the leaves with little droplets of water.. And here it goes, something I never expected that came out awesomely well..
Tried HDR on the beautiful lotus.. To view more lotus pics, please visit here.
The photowalk group here in Washington D.C. and nearby are so lively and active. They take all time out from their busy world and come down with awesome energy and enthusiasm. Now coming to this post. We went to the McKee Beshers Wildlife Management where about several acres of Sunflowers were planted and they bloom only for two weeks in a year. And this was the season. We were all asked to be there at 5:30 A.M. on a Saturday morning. Being there, thinking we were the first, I find 20 other cars already parked and about 25 photographers all set with their tripods and already shooting. Finally we found a perfect place ( all in our mind) and started our photoshoot. The result is what all this post is about..

I also tried some HDR of these sunflowers and they also came out pretty satisfactory just like the one below.
