Other states have a similar sayings about their weather, "Wait 5 minutes and it will change." Michigan's constant changing weather truly keeps us guessing.
Such was the case Saturday for my leg of the 2010 Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. Held in Ann Arbor at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens, the 24th was pretty much a wash-out. Guessing whether or not the rainy weather would hold out for a few hours and watching weather reports; the best strategy was to just call it a day and wait till the next.
By the next morning I was guessing as well. It was raining harder than the day before. But that 5 minute wait proved fortuitous. The clouds opened up to a beautiful sunny day.
If you’ve never been to the Matthaei Botanical Gardens you will be in for a wondrous treat. By July all the flowers and gardens are in full bloom. Nature never disappoints. The flowers, plants, trees and “treats” were simply amazing to see and photograph. An hour into the walk, I was still photographing items 20 yards from the front gate.
You don’t have to wait for an event of this magnitude to do your own photowalk. just grab your camera and head outside.
