The main photograph is of a large canopy at the National Botanic Garden of Wales in Carmarthenshire, Wales. I photographed it on a dark broody day. It is typical of the weather in the region. I have played with its colours so you can enjoy it from your particular colour bias. The other photos are also taken in the Garden with a little doctoring to enhance different features.
